About Me

Hi! I have completed my PhD at INSA Lyon within the LIRIS and LAGEPP research labs.

My research interests are at the edges of physics, control, and machine learning. I am deeply interested in physical simulation with deep learning, and looking forward to pursue my research in connected fields, such ML-based control, and robotics.

My background is in electrical engineering and signal processing (MSc), but I also own a degree in artificial intelligence (MSc). In parallel, teaching will always be a part of my career, as I am a "agrégé" teacher in engineering and computer science.

  • I have successfully defended my PhD ! Here is a link to the manuscript, and the (unnecessarily fancy) slides of my defense.

    The slides are made using reveal.js, and the animations are made using d3.js. The code is publicly available (on my github page). Don't hesitate to tell me (mail or X (Twitter)) if you find a way of reusing it for your own presentations !

  • I made an online tool to explore ArXiv papers and authors in IA: Go check it out!
