Biography


I received the B.Eng. (Hons) degree in computer networks and distributed systems from Edinburgh Napier University in 2003, the M.Sc. degree in information technology from Aalborg University Esbjerg in 2005, the Ph.D. degree in information and communication systems from the University of Technology of Compiègne in 2009, and the H.D.R. degree in computer engineering, automatic control and signal processing from Artois University in 2018.

I am a Full Professor at Artois University: I am a member of the Laboratory of Computer Engineering and Automation of Artois (LGI2A) and I teach in the Industrial Engineering and Logistics department, both belonging to the Faculty of Applied Sciences located in Béthune, France. My research interests include uncertain reasoning, information fusion and machine learning.
