In December 2014 I obtained my Ph.D. from the Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace  (Toulouse, France). I have been working as a Ph.D. student at Onera in the Systems Control and Flight Dynamics (DCSD) department, Control and Decision (CD) research unit under the supervision of Vincent Vidal and Guillaume Infantes. My research field is Automated Planning in Artificial Intelligence. I have developed a PDDL planner based on an original idea: searching for a good landmark sequence, in order to decompose a planning problem into subproblems hopefully easier to solve, through a “meta” best-first search in the space of landmark orderings.

Since then, I am working the PARK research group at University of Huddersfield where I work on Autonomous and Intelligent Robotics.
