I am a research lead in Brain Research and leading a team working on reinforcement learning, imitation learning as well as audio and language processing in Europe. I studied engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of Mons (FPMs) in Belgium. Before joining the Brain team in Paris I was a research scientist with DeepMind in London. I spent quite some time in academia in France as a professor before that (at Supélec, Univ. Lille) and was a member of the SequeL Inria team (now Scool) and of the CRIStAL CNRS lab.
