Former student of the ENS Cachan (now ENS Paris-Saclay), and PhD of the University of Toulon in Mechanical engineering, I am an associate professor (CNU section 60) at the IUT GMP of Toulon and the COSMER laboratory.

I defended my thesis in 2020 concerning the multi-axis additive manufacturing of tubes by robotic wire deposition, and particularly the generation and optimization of trajectories. Afterwards, I worked one year as a research and innovation pilot, during which I continued research work on multi-axis additive manufacturing, especially for the WAAM process.


My work focuses on multi-axis additive manufacturing, using metallic or polymeric materials, in order to generate manufacturing trajectories adapted to multi-axis additive manufacturing using directed energy deposition processes, in order to suppress the support. One aspect of the work carried out also concerns the in-situ monitoring of the process in order to control it according to the operating conditions.
