ENSTA ParisTech

I am professor in the Autonomous Systems and Robotics team and director of the Computer Science and System Ingeneering Laboratory at ENSTA ParisTech. I'm also a member of the INRIA/ENSTA ParisTech FLOWERS team on developmental robotics.

My research interests focus on cognitive robotics and more particularly on the developmental approach to robotics. My goal is to develop methods to simplify and robustify the use of robots in everyday life and to develop their autonomy. I am particularly interested in:

  • navigation, mapping, planning,
  • machine learning applied to multimodal perception,
  • applications to humanoid or mobile robots and autonomous vehicles.

If you speak french, you can read my article on developmental robotics published in La Jaune et le Rouge or view a short talk I gave for the 50 years of INRIA. You may also read my Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (in french too).
