Short bio

I graduated with a Mechanical and Control Systems Engineering  degree from the INSA Rennes in September 2016.*

For the last semester of my master degree, I choose to specialize in control and embedded systems. I decided to study at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) during the winter semester 2015/2016.

Then, I worked at the Gipsa-lab in Grenoble for 6 months on my master’s thesis, which the subject was « Put this there ! : Modeling deictic gestures for a humanoid robot ».

I am actually a PhD student in the Rainbow (previously Lagadic) group at IRISA / INRIA in Rennes under the supervision of Dr. Marie Babel (INSA/IRISA) and Sylvain Guégan (INSA/LGCGM). My research objective is to model the dynamics of the electric powered wheelchair. This model will allow to improve the driving assistance control laws during the semi-autonomous navigation. It also will be used in the development of a wheelchair driving simulator.

Short bio

I obtained my Bachelor in Mechatronics Engineering at University of Guanajuato, Mexico in 2010 where I worked on « Object Localization by a camera to control a robotic arm ». After, I received my Master degree in Electrical Engineering at University of Guanajuato, Mexico in 2012 where I worked on « Visual odometry and 3D reconstruction ». During my Master degree I did an internship at INRIA Sophia Antipolis with EVOLUTION team from May to November 2011 with a project named « Development of a Vision-based Robot Control Application ».

I carried out my Ph.D. in the LAGADIC team at IRISA/INRIA-Rennes (now Rainbow team).  During my Ph.D. I was working in the field of Medical Robotics, and the title of my thesis is “A robotic control framework for quantitative ultrasound elastography” under the supervision of Dr. Alexandre KrupaElastography is a promising technique that unveils the elastic parameters of  a tissue. This feature is being exploited in medical diagnosis of diseases (e.g., liver fibrosis, breast cancer). In addition, elastography is a non-invasive technique which improves the comfort of a patient.  In my Ph.D. thesis we developed three novel robotic approaches to assist examiners with elastography.  The first approach deals with the control of a robot actuating an ultrasound probe to perform palpation motion required for ultrasound elastography. The elasticity of the tissue is used to design a servo control law to keep a stiff tissue of interest in the field of view of the ultrasound probe. Additionally, the orientation of the probe is controlled by a human user to explore other tissue while elastography is performed. The second approach exploits deformable image registration of ultrasound images to estimate the tissue elasticity and to help in the automatic compensation by ultrasound visual servoing of a motion introduced into the tissue. The third approach offers a methodology to render the tissue elasticity by moving a virtual probe in the ultrasound image with a haptic device while the robot is performing palpation motion. Experimental results of the three robotic approaches over phantoms with tissue-like offer an excellent perspective for robotic-assistance for ultrasound elastography.

A list of my publications can be found here.

  • Automatic palpation for quantitative ultrasound elastography (presented in IROS 2016 Daejeon, Korea)

  • Strain map of moving tissue based on automatic motion compensation by ultrasound visual servoing (presented in IROS 2017 Vancouver, Canada)

Short bio

In May 2015, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the American University of Beirut (AUB) with a focus on the mechatronics and robotics track. For my final year project, my team and I designed and manufactured an angular steering mobile robotic platform that was capable of navigating rough terrains and climbing steps.

From May 2014 to August 2014, I spent three months as a student researcher at the University of California in Berkeley under the supervision of Dr. Steven Glaser, where I designed a motion controller to be used for laboratory earthquake experiments.

From June 2015 to July 2015, I was a research assistant in the Nano Micro Technologies and Tissue Engineering Lab at AUB under the supervision of Dr. Anwarul Hasan.

From September 2015 to July 2017, I pursued my master’s degree at the Vision and Robotics Lab at AUB, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Asmar. As part of my research, I have worked on incorporating scene priors in the structure from motion pipeline, and on an Object-Oriented Structure from Motion algorithm which utilizes interaction from the user to guide the reconstruction.

Since October 2017, I joined the Rainbow team (previously Lagadic) at IRISA/ Inria Rennes as a PhD student. I am currently working under the supervision of Dr. Paolo Robuffo Giordano and Dr. Claudio Pacchierotti on developing mixed tactile-force feedback techniques for safe and intuitive robotic teleoperation.

Short bio

Currently temporary teaching and research assistant at ISTIC for the 2017-2018 academic year.

I entered the department of Electronics, Electrotechnics and Control at the Ecole Normale Supérieur de Cachan in 2010.
I graduated a Master of Education and Teaching, electrical engineering option in 2013. The same year I passed the competitive french exam of the Agregation of Engineering Sciences, Electrical Engineering option. In 2014, I graduated a Master degree in Control and Signal and Image Processing at ENS Cachan, Supélec and University Paris-Sud. I made my Master research project in the Lagadic team on the tracking of deformable objects in ultrasound volumes.

I received a Ph.D. in Signal Processing and Telecommunications at the University of Rennes 1 in 2017. My Ph.D. work was on the subject of flexible needle steering using ultrasound visual servoing and was carried out under the supervision of Alexandre Krupa and Marie Babel. Early 2017, I also spent three months of mobility at University of Twente in the Netherlands, where I worked on needle steering at Surgical Robotics Laboratory in the research team of Sarthak Misra.

The focus of my research is related to the development of a solution for the assistance to the needle insertion procedures. These procedures are more and more commonly used, mainly for diagnosis and treatment of tumors. The steering of a thin flexible needle in soft tissues is a complex task which requires a high accuracy to avoid misdiagnosis or damages to surrounding healthy tissues. I mainly focus on the design of a control strategy in order to reach a target in the tissues with a flexible needle attached to a robotic arm. Visual feedback is obtained through a 3D mechanical ultrasound probe to be able to localize the needle and the target during the procedure. Hence my work also focuses on the modeling of the needle-tissue interaction and on image processing for the tracking of the needle in ultrasound volumes.
