PhD in Computer Science - Artificial Intelligence

I am currently a temporary teaching and research assistant (ATER) at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne. I defended by PhD thesis on "dynamic generation of critical situations in virtual environments: dilemma and ambiguity" in september 2018 in this same university. My research areas are mainly : artificial intelligence, virtual environments for learning (VET) and knowledge representation. I am currently looking for an assistant professor position or a postdoctoral position in these areas.
