News: Since Februrary 2019, I'm at Google Research in NYC. I work on Language. Stay tuned for updates!

How to pronounce my name: Tee-Bo—it's French!


I am an engineer at Google Research in NYC, in the Language team. I build systems to help people interact with data and complex statistical models. More broadly, I am interested in anything that involves AI, databases and people. Relevant keywords are data exploration, language generation, NLP, ML interpretability, and human-in-the-loop machine learning.

I am also a music nerd—when I am not at the office, you may find me play with a band, an orchestra or enjoy one of New York's many music venues. I also like to apply ML to music, see examples here.

Previously, I was a postdoc at the Data Science Institute of Columbia University, in New York. Before this, I was a PhD student at the University of Amsterdam and CWI (the Netherlands), after a year spent as a software engineer at JP Morgan in London (UK).
