 Short bio

My research interests are in the field of digital communications and related signal processing techniques (e.g., estimation/detection, time-frequency analysis)

Since late 2020, I’m a full professor at the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE-SUPAERO), University of Toulouse. From 2013 to 2020, I was an associate professor (same affiliation). 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). From 2009 to 2012, I was working towards the PhD at Grenoble Images Paroles Signal Automatique laboratory (GIPSA-lab), under the supervision of C. Siclet and J.M. Brossier.

I received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in communications from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (today known as IMT-Atlantique) in 2009 and the Ph.D. degree in signal processing from the University of Grenoble in 2012. I obtained the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR) degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (INP Toulouse) in 2020.


Ongoing research topics :

  • “faster-than-Nyquist” (FTN) transmission techniques (interference mitigation, synchronization...) ;
  • spectrum and waveform sharing (radar/communication) ;
  • multicarrier modulations over mobile radio channels (pulse shapes optimization, equalization...).

See my publications here (open archives).


Currently in charge of the following courses :

  • Wireless transmission techniques, Dipl.-Ing. ISAE-SUPAERO, 3rd year ;
  • Software-defined radio, Dipl.-Ing. ISAE-SUPAERO, 3rd year ;
  • Introduction to wireless communications, Dipl.-Ing. ISAE-SUPAERO, 2nd year ;
  • Advanced waveforms design, research-oriented master ACS.
