I was born in Cahors, France, in 1963. I graduated from Telecom Bretagne (Brest, France) in 1986 and from the University of Rennes (France) in 1997 (Ph.D.). From 1987 until 2000, I was with Thales. In particular, between 1990 and 1998, I was with Thales Avionics where my research as an engineer concerned speech processing for applications to speech recognition systems embedded in military fast jet cockpits. From 1998 to 2000, I was with Thales Nederland where I worked on the detection of radar targets in sea clutter. In September 2000, I joined Altran Technologies Nederland as a senior consultant. Since September 2002, I am with Institut Telecom, where I am currently Professor at IMT Atlantique (formerly, Telecom Bretagne). My research interests are described under the tab Research on this site.
