Background and Position

I graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from the Lebanese University in 2011.
I then started my M.Sc. studies in Mechanical Engineering at the American University of Beirut where I was a research assistant at the the Vision and Robotics lab from October 2011 till March 2013.

In April 2013, I took a position as a production chain consultant at Murex Syetems (Software Engineering) alongside my masters. I got my M.Sc. degree in May 2014.
After spending a couple of years in industry, I switched back to Academia in September 2015 and joined CNRS for a Ph.D. in robotics.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Lagadic group at IRISA / INRIA in Rennes under the supervision of Dr. Paolo Robuffo Giordano

Research areas

Robotics, Shared Autonomy, Human-Robot Interaction, Haptics, Control, Planning, Computer Vision.
