Nicolas Aussel

Espoo, Finland
Applied Machine Learning Researcher


I received my Ph.D. in Applied Computer Science from Universite Paris-Saclay, France, in 2019 where I have worked on a variety of problems including rare event prediction, log mining and recommender systems in relation with aeronautical systems predictive maintenance with the company Safran. Since then I have worked on rare disease diagnostics and I am now exploring wireless machine learning topics. I joined Nokia Bell Labs in December 2021.

I am interested in applied machine learning and how to bridge the gap between theoretical research and engineering in a broad sense.
