My main field of research is Computational Linguistics, or Natural Language Processing, that is making computers understand and process human languages. I have worked at the interface between academic and industry research, on projects ranging from formal grammars development to machine translation tools or dialogue systems with virtual advisors.


As a pilot and a linguist, I became interested in the question of communication in aviation and focussed my own research on Aviation English.
