Alice Since September 2016, I've joined the Wu and Altschuler lab (UCSF) as a post-doctoral scholar, where I work on representation learning for drug discovery.

Quick bio

I defended my PhD of Bioinformatics in December 2015 (CBIO, Mines ParisTech), after three years under the supervision of Thomas Walter, and the direction of Robert Barouki and Jean-Philippe Vert. During my PhD, I was interested in applying computer vision and machine learning methods to video-microscopy data. My research focused on the development of tools for automatic and quantitative characterization of cellular dynamic processes from video-microscopy data, following chemical exposure.

Between my PhD and my post-doc, I had the chance to develop machine learning approaches for challenging real world problems and data related to insurance fraud detection at Shift technology.
