After having been a teacher at SUPMECA Toulon, I am now assigned to SEATECH, the engineering school of the University of Toulon which brought together the SUPMECA and ISITV engineering schools in Toulon in September 2014.


Since the beginning of my research activity I have been interested in industrial systems engineering, first in production and more recently in mechatronics. I approached this field of engineering under two aspects: the model aspect and the methodological aspect.  Current applications cover autonomous land and marine systems.
