Research

My domain relates to data science in the large health sector. I have a strong interests and background in medical data warehouses, semantics, data quality and interoperability in healthcare generated data reuse for public health (epidemiology and surveillance systems).

I am associated to the Inserm LIMICS (Medical Informatics and Knowledge Engineering Lab) lab for my research in the e-health domain.

My main area of expertise deals with semantic interoperability healthcare data, which covers a wide area and includes particularly the problems associated with the exchange of medical information (in the broad sense) between the medical computer systems. Technical themes typically associated with these areas are ontologies, semantic mediation architectures, clinical data warehouses, data quality in the web of data.

French expert for medical coding and rare diseases, I am often appointed as consultant, such as in the european project ASSESS-CT.

I am a member of the french temporary scientific committee of the SNOMED-CT national project.

I was co-editor of the clinical research informatics section of the IMIA yearbook of medical informatics (2012-2017). I participate to various expertise for ANR and as a reviewer for various journals and conferences such as MEDINFO or AMIA.

I have participated in the working groups of various national initiatives in France such as the new France Genomic 2025 plan as well as the Big Data consultation group.

I participated into a FP7-IP project named DebugIT as co-leader of the interoperability platform work package during my Ph.D. degree defining innovative solutions for healthcare data interoperability that were then valorized by Agfa Healthcare.
