About me

I am associate professor at LIP6, the computer science laboratory of Sorbonne University and CNRS, working in the MAS group. I was previously working as a researcher at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). I received my PhD from UPMC in 2012, under the supervision of Pr. A. El Fallah Seghrouchni and Dr. V. Corruble.

Research interests

My work focuses on the study of long-term autonomy (months, years) for artificial entities. More precisely, I aim to study, conceive and implement on-board cognitive architectures allowing agents to coordinate, work and autonomously adapt their behaviours over time in open, dynamic and partially observable environments.

I am also interested in the Ethical, Legal and Societal (ELS) issues related to the deployment of AI.
