I am a CNRS Director of Research based in the LORIA Computer Science research unit of Nancy, France. My research is in Computational Linguistics and I focus on lexical acquisition and grammar development for French, the syntax/semantics interface and TAG (Tree Adjoining Grammar) based surface realisation.

After studying linguistics at the University of Toulouse, I graduated from the University of Essex with an MSc in Artificial Intelligence and defended my PhD in Cognitive Science at the University of Edinburgh. From 1991 to 2000, I worked as a researcher at the Universities of Utrecht and Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Clermont-Ferrand and Sarrebruecken (Germany). Since 2001 I have been working for the CNRS at the Lorraine Laboratory for Research in Computer Science (LORIA) in Nancy, France.

I have published a book on analysis and generation (with Karine Baschung) and about 100 articles in journals and conference proceedings many of them in the ACL conferences (ACL, EACL, NAACL).

I have been nominated Chair of the European Chapter for the Association of Computational Linguistics (EACL), editor in chief of the french journal Traitement Automatique des Langues and member of the editorial board of the journals Computational Linguistics, Journal of Semantics. Each year I am on the programme committee of half a dozen international conferences or workshops. I also acted as general conference chair for EACL 2006 and Program Chair for ESSLLI 2002, DIALOR 2005, TAG+ 2008, EACL 2009, ENLG 2011 and SIGDIAL 2012.

On tuesdays at 12 a.m, I teach Iyengar yoga at LORIA. For this, I thank Clé Souren, my teacher in Amsterdam.
