RESEARCH DOMAINS

  • My area of study is Artifial Intelligence, and more precisely knowledge acquisition and machine learning.
  • I have been working with my team on Computer Privacy for more than 17 years. I am interested in privacy-enhancing technologies in different settings, such as social networks, electronic commerce and e-learning. I also work on privacy-preserving data mining and the protection of personal data (identity theft, information disclosure, profiling, re-identification and privacy policies).
  • I am also interested in Electronic Commerce (profiling and computer privacy) and Knowledge Management, and more specifically in intelligent agents for E-commerce (recommender systems).
  • I have been involved in the area of intelligent tutoring systems (Learning Strategies and Task Modelling, taking into account the learner's pedagogical context and his/her emotions).

EXPERTISE

  • Artificial intelligence, Security, Privacy, Trust, Protection of Personal Data, Privacy Policies, Profile management, Artificial intelligence ethics, Cyberethics, Social media, e-Learning, Economics of Privacy, Electronic commerce, e-Business, Intelligent agents, Recommender Systems, Web services, Information technology, Human Computer Interaction, Data Mining, Information Systems, Computers in human behavior.
