I am an associate professor at ETIS research department, a research facility with french Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), ENSEA Graduate School of Electrical Engineering, and Cergy University (Grand Paris). My research activity deals with classical and quantum information theory and its connection with statistical physics, error correcting codes, Monte Carlo markov chain methods and inference methods (including Belief Propagation related algorithms). I am also vividly active in the stimulating interdisciplinary field of “art & science”, either as a researcher (in collaboration with Institut Actes at la Sorbonne and with l’Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Art de Paris-Cergy through the Cycle & Recycle research project) or as an artist myself.
I completed a PhD in theoretical physics at Laboratoire de Physique Theorique et Modelisation on statistical physics of spin systems and dedicated numerical methods. I’m also holding the french Agrégation grade.
My teaching activities revolve around quantum physics, quantum information theory and dynamical systems at graduate level (I’m especially active in the international Master of Theoretical Physics and Application at Cergy University) ; I also teach Object Oriented Programming (Java and Design Patterns). With Bertrand David (now at Telecom ParisTech) I also created an elective graduate course on musical acoustics and audio signal processing, which I’ve been teaching along with Geoffroy Peeters from IRCAM in the last five years.
