A short self-introduction of Ba 

I did my graduate studies at the University Gaston Berger of Saint-Louis (Senegal) before completing my thesis in computer science at INSA/IRISA in Rennes as part of the SemLIS team in collaboration with the GenOuest platform. My thesis, which I defended in December 2015, focused on the guided composition of data analysis workflows with a bioinformatics application. After the thesis, I did 4 years of Post-Doc at INRA (Bibliome team) where I worked in text mining on methods and infrastructures for text and data mining. Since October 2019, I have been a Reseach Engineer at Migale to work on the construction of a  text mining service within the Migale platform in collaboration with the Bibliome team.
