I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Polytechnique Montreal since May 2012, and a member of GERAD, a multi-university research group on decision analysis. I co-direct the Mobile Robotics and Autonomous Systems Laboratory. In the past I have been affiliated with the GRASP Laboratory and the PRECISE Center for embedded systems at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at MIT, where I received my PhD in September 2008. I graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique in France in 2001, and I also received in 2003 an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. You can see my CV and a more official biographical sketch for more details.
