Résumé de carrière

  • I am an associate professor at the Lebanese University – Centre for Language Sciences & Communication since 2014. After a thesis at the University of Tours – France defended in 2007, I took a temporary teaching assistant position at the University of Orléans – France (2006 - 2008), then I performed a post-doctorate in TELECOM Bretagne – France (2008 - 2009). After that, I worked as adjunct professor at the Lebanese University and in private universities in Lebanon (2009-2014).
  • My research interest focus on Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning, particularly in deep learning for Arabic sentiment analysis and in my most recent works, I am interested in Arabic Word Sense Disambiguation using new trends in Natural Language Processing. Previously I explored the use the Contextual Exploration Method to extract reported speech from Lebanese newspapers as well as for extracting spatial knowledge in Arabic.
