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 2015 at the University of Lorraine. I obtained my M.Sc. and Licence (B.Sc.) degrees in Computer Science in 2012 and 2010, respectively, from the University of Strasbourg, France.

My research interests are in cognitive robotics, cognitive architectures, autonomous intelligent systems, machine learning, automated functional design of objects, AI and law, sustainable economics and optimal governance systems.
