I graduated from ENI Brest engineer school (specialisation in electronics) in 1992, and received the Master of Science degree in Electronics and Aerospace Telecommunication from Supaero in Toulouse in 1993. Since 1994, I have been working for Inria a public science and technology institution dedicated to computational sciences, as research engineer, first in the Temis team (1994-1996), then in the Vista team (1996-2003) and since 2004 in the Lagadic team.


I am in charge of the material and software management of several robotic experimentation platforms dedicated to researches in visual servoing. My interests include software engineering for the design of real-time computer vision and robotics applications. I am the software architect of the open-source ViSP (Visual Servoing Platform) library. I am involved in several national and ANR projects.

Member of the Comité de Centre Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique (since 2009).

Member of the Engineers Evaluation Commission (CEI methods, techniques and tools) of the French Institute for Agronomy Research -Inra- (2001-2008).
