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). After more than a decade working on classical and quantum information theory and its connection with statistical physics, error correcting codes, Monte Carlo Markov chain methods and inference methods, I am now vividly active in the stimulating interdisciplinary field of “Art & Science“, either as a researcher (in collaboration with e.g. Institut Actes at la Sorbonne or l’Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Art de Paris-Cergy through the Cycle & Recycle research project) or as an artist myself (including numerous collaborations, e.g., with Cantierezero collective, Ooze architects, Compagnie Luciernaga, …). My recent works and publications revolve around the question of ambivalence and actes manqués in our relation to technology, for which I am making use of tools from moral philosophy, ethics and psychoanalysis.
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. I originally graduated in electrical engineering along with an undergrad philosophy cursus.
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 taught Object Oriented Programming (Java and Design Patterns). With Bertrand David (now at Telecom ParisTech) I 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. I’m also training students to creative approaches like the CK or the Design Thinking methods.
