About Me

Hi I am Jordan Frecon-Deloire :wave:,
I am currently an associate professor in machine learning. I teach at Télécom Saint-Etienne (Jean Monnet University, Université de Lyon) and I conduct my research within the Data Intelligence team (Hubert Curien Laboratory).
Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the LITIS group (INSA Rouen Normandie) working with Stéphane Canu and Gilles Gasso. In 2021, I benefited from an external collaborator position at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in the Computational Statistics and Machine Learning group directed by Massimiliano Pontil where I used to work as a postdoctoral researcher from 2017 to 2020. I defended my PhD in Physics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS de Lyon) on October 11th 2016, under the supervision of Patrice Abry and Nelly Pustelnik.
