Short Bio

Olivier Pietquin obtained an Electrical Engineering degree from the Faculty of Engineering, Mons (FPMs, Belgium) in June 1999 and a PhD degree in April 2004. In 2011, he received the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (French Tenure) from the University Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France). He joined the FPMs Signal Processing department (TCTS Lab.) in September 1999. In 2001, he has been a visiting researcher at the Speech and Hearing lab of the University of Sheffield (UK). Between 2004 and 2005, he was a Marie-Curie Fellow at the Philips Research lab in Aachen (Germany). Now he is a Professor at the Metz campus of the Ecole Superieure d'Electricite (Supelec, France), and headed the "Information, Multimodality & Signal" (IMS) research group from 2006 to 2010 when the group joined the UMI 2958 (GeorgiaTech - CNRS). In 2012, he heads the Machine Learning and Interactive Systems group (MaLIS). From 2007 to 2011, he was also a member of the IADI INSERM research team (in biomedical signal processing). He is a full member of the UMI 2958 (GeorgiaTech - CNRS) since 2010 and coordinates the computer science department of this joint lab. Since 2010, Olivier Pietquin sits at the IEEE Speech and Language Technical Committee and he is a Senior IEEE member since 2011. His research interests include spoken dialog systems evaluation, simulation and automatic optimisation, machine learning, speech and signal processing. He authored or co-authored more than 100 publications in these domains.
