Passionate about underwater robotics for over thirteen years, I defended a Franco-British PhD thesis about localization methods for underwater robots with set-membership approaches. See more.

Mobile robotics motivates the study of new methods to deal with dynamical systems using a constraint programming approach. I recently finished a postdoctoral research on this topic at IMT Atlantique/LS2N (Nantes, France).

I am currently an associate professor at ENSTA Bretagne (Brest, France), an engineering school connected with the research laboratory Lab-STICC.

I am developing the Tubex library: a C++ project providing tools to guarantee computations over sets of trajectories.

Member of the Contredo project (ANR), that gathers several academic and industrial partners with the aim of designing a software tool based on intervals to handle dynamical systems.
