Christophe joined the Faculty of the Department of Computer Science at Brigham Young University in 2004. Prior to coming to BYU, he was Senior Manager at ELCA, a Swiss IT services company, where his responsibilities included the capitalization of Data Mining expertise, responses to tenders and the management of various projects for companies, local governments and NGOs. Prior to ELCA, Christophe was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol, where he founded and led the Machine Learning Research Group. Christophe received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Computer Science at Brigham Young University in 1991, 1993, and 1994, respectively.
