Since late 2013, I’m an associate professor at the Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal (DEOS) of the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE-SUPAERO), University of Toulouse. My research interests are in the field of digital communications and related signal processing techniques (e.g., estimation/detection, time-frequency analysis...).

From 2012 to 2013, I was a temporary assistant professor (ATER) at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Informatique et de Mathématiques Appliquées de Grenoble (ENSIMAG).

In 2012, I obtained my Ph.D. in signal processing applied to wireless communications at Grenoble Images Paroles Signal Automatique (GIPSA-lab), University of Grenoble.

In 2009, I obtained my engineer degree (MSc.) from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (today known as IMT-Atlantique).

 Research activities

Topics :

  • “faster-than-Nyquist” transmission techniques (interference mitigation, synchronization...) ;
  • multicarrier modulations over mobile radio channels (pulse shapes optimization, equalization, radar processing...).

Applications fields : satellite broadcasting, aeronautical communications, terrestrial cellular and ad-hoc networks...

 Teaching activities

Head of the research-oriented master Terrestrial, Aeronautical, Space Telecommunications (TAST), University of Toulouse. Double degree available from various options in the following engineer schools : ENAC, ENSEEIHT, ISAE-SUPAERO, INSA Toulouse.

Head of the teaching-oriented software defined radio platform RALF, University of Toulouse. This project aims at sharing resources (e.g., transceivers, datasets, software, teaching resources...) between several local engineer schools and universities (e.g., ENAC, ENSEEIHT, ISAE-SUPAERO, INSA Toulouse, UPS...) and other partners (e.g., GIPSA-lab, IMT-Atlantique...).

Currently in charge of several teaching units :

  • Introduction to wireless communication, SUPAERO 2nd year ;
  • Digital communications, SUPAERO 3rd year ;
  • Software defined radio : concepts and applications, EUROSAE ;
  • Aeronautical communications, EUROSAE ;
  • Time-frequency selective channels : models and simulation techniques, M2 TAST ;
  • Transmission over frequency selective channels, M2 TAST.

Plus much more lectures, practice labs, projects in the field of signal processing and telecoms...
