About Me

I have long been interested in artificial intelligence and data mining, particularly within the realms of healthcare and medical informatics. This interest has motivated my innovations in leading conferences like AAAI, ICDM, CIKM, etc., with publications in respected journals such as journals like AIM, DMKD, KBS, etc. I've have garnered several awards qua first author in recognition of the work, including Best Students' Paper Prize from the Québec health system - Centre de recherche du CHUS (CRCHUS) in 2019, Best Paper Award from CIKM in 2021, Best Application Paper Award from PAKDD in 2019, as well as the Best Doctoral Thesis Award from the Faculté des sciences de l'Université de Sherbrooke in 2019.

My contributions have been integral to esteemed institutions, including Université de Sherbrooke, University of Alberta (and Amii), and Case Western Reserve University.
