Passionate about underwater robotics for over twelve years, I recently 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 solve dynamical systems using a constraint programming approach. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher on this topic at IMT Atlantique (Nantes, France).
