Short bio

I have graduated from the Polytech Nantes engineering school in 1997 specialized in electronic and infomation technologies. I have been working 4 years in the Alcatel-Lucent company as an engineer, team manager and consultant in telecommunication systems. In 2002, I graduated from ENTPE (French National Engineering School of Public Works). Now I am working as head of the SII (Structures and Integrated Instrumentation) Laboratory (25 people). My interests are smart systems, sensors and wireless sensor networks specification and design in view of coupling structural modeling into smart devices. The topics of my 25 peer reviewed journal and conference papers refer to Non Destructive Techniques (NDT) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Since 2008, I am member of the Scientific Committee of EWSHM: European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring
