Our Team

Our research & development team brings together talented engineers and experienced researchers with expertise in a variety of domains central to our research objectives, from IoT to theoretical linguistics. Through the French CIFRE program (Conventions Industrielles de Formation par la REcherche), which allows students to be employed in industry positions while carrying out doctoral research relevant to the industry’s scientific goals, we also play an important role in training future researchers.  Our team is based and directed in Toulouse, although a number of members work from other locations, including LINAGORA’s offices in Paris and Tunis. Many of our members come from outside of France, bringing a diverse set of training and linguistic backgrounds that help to broaden our approach to research.
