I graduated from the ENSPS (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Strasbourg), specialized in Systems Ingineering Automation and Vision in 2004.
During the last year of this degree, I obtained a master equivalent degree specialized in Automation and Vision, at Louis Pasteur University (ULP) in Strasbourg.
In October 2004, I started a PhD in the Lagadic team at IRISA, supervised by François Chaumette.
I am working on visual servoing technics to control Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The aim of my work is to automate difficult tasks such as in-flight refueling, landing and taking off for an UAVs package.
I also participate in the french national project Robea Robvolint (ROBot VOLant d'INTérieur) ; this project is carried out via a collaboration between four french laboratories (I3S Sophia Antipolis, IRISA Rennes, CEA/LIST Fontenay Aux Roses et IRCCyN Nantes). It aims at improving knowledges in the field of aerial robotics applied in indoor environments. One of the objectives of this collaboration is to design and create a small four rotors helicopter (named X4-flyer), able to explore indoor environments autonomously.
The aim of my work is to research vision-based localization and visual servoing methods to be used by the helicopter.
The algorithms I implement are tested on a cartesian robot at IRISA, which simulates the behaviour of the helicopter.
