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

See my publications here (open archives).


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...
