Presentation

In short -------- Jean-Philippe is an **Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences HC)** in Computing at Aix-Marseille Université (AMU), where he teaches at the Technology Institute (IUT), and does his research at [Laboratoire Parole et Langage](https://www.lpl-aix.fr/) (LPL) since 2018. Prior to this he was a **Senior Lecturer** at Université de Montpellier (2010 - 2018, IUT and [LIRMM](https://www2.lirmm.fr/)), a **post-doctoral researcher** at [Université d'Orléans](http://www.univ-orleans.fr/) (2008 - 2010, LIFO), and a **Natural Language Processing Specialist** at [numéro (Smart Analytics Ltd.)](http://www.thisisnumero.com/) (2008, Manchester, UK). He was awarded his **Cotutelle PhD** in Computer Science in 2008, by [Macquarie University](https://www.mq.edu.au/) and [Université de Provence.](http://www.univ-aix.fr/) His work was supervised by [Diego Mollá](http://web.science.mq.edu.au/%7Ediego/) and [Mark Dras](http://web.science.mq.edu.au/%7Emadras/) at Macquarie, and [Philippe Blache](https://www.lpl-aix.fr/contact/philippe-blache/) at Provence. Prior to being an academic, Jean-Philippe worked as a **Research Programmer** (2001 - 2003, Macquarie University, Sydney), as a **COOL:Gen Consultant** (2001, IPP Consultancy Services, Sydney), as a **Software Engineer** (1998 - 2001, Sopra, France), as a **Research Programmer** and a **Math teacher** (1997, CNRS and Institut Leschi, Marseille, France). His field of interest is **Natural Language Processing** (NLP). His work is concerned with Natural Language Understanding (NLU), the computational modelling of the graded nature of grammaticality (i.e. gradience), Model-Theoretic Syntax, and the use of constraints and constraint satisfaction mechanisms for NLP. More recently, he has been focusing on **Knowledge Graphs** and their use in NLP applications. Projects -------- - **[HOLINET](http://holinet.lpl-aix.fr/)** (2015 -. . .) : (**PI**) Knowledge Graph for French, which integragtes the lexical semantic network JeuxDeMots and a grammar layer derived from the French Treebank (FTB). - **UMCSParser** (2013 - 2017) : (**PI**) Constraint solving for robust syntactic parsing.
