I am an associate professor in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence and Robotics) at IMT Atlantique. I was previously a postdoc at Inria Nancy, at the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR) in Lisbon, and at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR) in Paris. Prior to that I was as a doctoral researcher in ambient intelligence at Inria in Nancy. I also spent some time in the industry, working for PSA Peugeot Citroën and Dassault Systèmes.

I defended my Ph.D. thesis in artificial intelligence in 2015 at the University of Lorraine. I obtained my M.Sc. degree in software and data engineering in 2012, and my Licence (B.Sc.) degree in computer science in 2010, both from the University of Strasbourg, France.

My research interests are in cognitive robotics, ambient systems and automated functional design of objects.
