Current Projects and Areas of Interest



I am presently working as a teaching and research assistant at the Aix-Marseille Université.


My research, done at the Institut Fresnel, is focused on the development of nonlinear optimization algorithms applied to inverse scattering or more generally to inverse problems in electromagnetism.

My teaching activities, done at
Polytech' Marseille are related to electromagnetism, stochastic processes and mathematics.


Assignment History / Experience



oct 2002

Associate Professor at Institut Fresnel
Development of numerical methods for inverse scattering applications.
Member of ANR Aventures from 2013 to 2016.
Project Leader of ANR-JCJC CESAR from 2006 to 2010.
Team Leader of the
HIPE team from 2008 to 2017.


sept 2001
oct 2002

Project Leader at Schlumberger, Clamart, France

Project: Invasion 2
In charge of supervising and coordinating the algorithmic parts of the Invasion 2 product, a software platform for the interpretation of resistivity measurements in formation evaluation, for oil prospection


july 1999
sept 2001

Development Engineer at Schlumberger, Clamart, France
Project: Invasion 2
In charge of the development of some inversion algorithms for the interpretation of resistivity measurements


july 1998
july 1999

Development Engineer at Schlumberger, Clamart, France
Project: Platform Express Answer Products
I worked on the construction of a switchless algorithm for the density inversion scheme, whose goal is to be able to overpass the knowledge barite mud/no barite mud for the end-user. This scheme is part of the software platform used for the interpretation of nuclear measurements in formation evaluation
