Welcome! On this site I write on topics related to control theory. The selection is obviously limited by my own understanding of the subject. But luckily, I have broad interests and hopefully I will learn in the process as well. Occasionally, I plan to write about my own research.

Here is a short bio, or you can visit my homepage:

In 2001 I graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique in France, with an Engineering degree.

In 2003 I received a M. Sc. from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Although my research there was in the area of circuits and MEMS, I started getting interested in stochastic control theory. Then I spent some time in France working as a software engineer in the automotive engine control department of Bosch.

In 2004-2008 I did my PhD thesis at MIT in the laboratory for information and decision systems (LIDS). I worked under the supervision of Eric Feron, and then Munther Dahleh and Emilio Frazzoli. The topic of my thesis was decision-making for unmanned vehicle systems, and related sensor scheduling and path planning problems.

In September 2008, I joined the GRASP laboratory at Penn as a Postdoc, in the group of George Pappas. I am principally involved with the project HUNT: Heterogeneous Unmanned Networked Teams. Here you can find how these cool acronyms are generated.

Comments: you can insert Latex code in the text, to obtain mathematical expressions such as \dot x = A x + B u, by typing

$latex [your latex code]$.
