I am a Professor in Computer Science at Univ. Pierre et Marie Curie (aka Paris-6), and a member of the SMA team of LIP6. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor (Lecturer, MCF) in Computer Science at Univ. Paris-Dauphine, LAMSADE Lab. I hold a PhD from Univ. Paul Sabatier (Toulouse) and an habilitation from Univ. Paris-Dauphine.

[Research topics] :: My main research interests are artificial intelligence and multiagent systems, and concern various aspects of collective (and often distributed) decision making. More precisely, the topics I currently investigate include: computational social choice (in particular distributed mechanisms for resource allocation); argumentation-based reasoning and interaction; agent communication languages, interaction protocols; and I keep a vivid interest in the semantics and pragmatics of human dialogue.
I am currently involved in the following projects:

  • ANR-funded project on Advanced Multilateral Argumentation for DEliberation (AMANDE, start: December 2013);
  • COST action on "Computational Social Choice" (COMSOC)
I am an Associate Editor of the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (JAAMAS), an Editorial Board member of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR), and a member of the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS) board.
