Teaching and Supervision

I am actively involved in both teaching and supervision of graduate and undergraduate students. I am teaching since 2012 at Aix-Marseille University (AMU) courses on algorithms, machine learning and data science. I strongly contributed to the development and implementation of the master’s programme “Artifical Intelligence and Machine Learning” that was launched by the department of Computer Science at AMU in 2018. I have co-supervised 3 Ph.D. students and I am currently supervising 2 doctoral students on research topics related to quantum machine learning and deep learning.
