Mehdi Ben Lazreg

Growing up in Sousse, Tunisia I never missed an opportunity to play a game with my amateur local team. Later, I found academia, and I took a bachelor degree in ICT from the high school of communication of Tunisia in 2011. and obtained my master degree from the university of Agder in 2013. Now, I am a Ph.D. research fellow at the university of Agder.  My research focuses on using artificial intelligence and machine leaning techniques on social media to identify and extract crisis related information.  In addition, I am active in several research projects including CAIR, CIEM, smart rescue, and iTRACK. My field of expertise includes data mining, machine learning, deep learning, and optimization.
