Short Biography

I am an associate professor of Computer Science at the university of Brest (UBO). I am a member of the Lab-STICC Laboratory (MOCS Group). My current research activities are focused in the following aspects:

  • Tools for physical simulation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN),
  • Parallel models for accelerating simulations and predicting parameters in WSN,
  • Sampling methods for data mining,
  • Development of CAT (Computer Aided Test) tools for analog, mixed-signal and RF circuits,
  • Statistical modeling of analog, mixed-signal and RF circuits.

I received my Ph.D. in Micro and nano electronics at Grenoble INP, France in 2007. I received the M.S. degrees from ENSIMAG, Grenoble, France in 2003. From April 2007 to August 2008, I was a postdoctoral fellow at TIMA Laboratory. From September 2007 to August 2008, I was with Grenoble INP, France where I was a temporary professor. I have obtained the 3rd place of the Annual IEEE Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC-IEEE) Doctoral Thesis Contest, VLSI Test Symposium, Berkeley, USA, May 2007.

I am the coordinator of the project ANR PERSEPTEUR (587k€) and the partner of the project Suidia.

Until now, I published more than 90 publications including 4 books, 3 book chapters, and 6 international journals.
