Prof. Torres and I have met last December at Cergy Pontoise, France, on the occasion of his visit at the ETIS Labs and my research internship at the LIP6 Labs. We have quickly found common research interests and decided to submit a request for a post-doctoral scholarship to FAPESP, one of the biggest scientific sponsoring foundations in Brazil. We received the acceptance a few days ago.
During this new internship I will try to broaden some of the results of my thesis, and continue to work on scalability issues of Machine Learning and Information Retrieval. And I will continue to cooperate with my French colleagues (whom I am visiting on September, by the way ), and with my current team, at the Federal University of Minas Gerais.
I am looking forward to start it !
