Research Interests

My current research interests are case-based reasoning (and in particular, the adaptation phase), reasoning by analogy, and qualitative modeling.
During my Ph. D., I worked at the LORIA lab (Nancy, France) and my research focused on the problem of adaptation knowledge acquisition in case-based reasoning. The problem here is to determine what knowledge a system would need to be able to successfully solve a new problem by adapting a past problem-solving experience (like e.g., to cook a pear pie by adapting an apple pie recipe), and how to acquire such knowledge. My contributions to this topic include an interactive knowledge acquisition method in which adaptation knowledge is generated "on the fly" from the case base when needed by the means of knowledge discovery techniques.
