A number of persons and institutions have been instrumental to my career:
After my PhD, I joined the Cronin Group at the University of Glasgow, a leading Chemistry lab in the UK. In direct interaction with Lee Cronin, I lead a team of 9 bright researchers working at the intersection of Chemistry, AI and Robotics.
At the same period, we co-founded Pollen Robotics with Matthieu Lapeyre, Pierre Rouanet and Nicolas Rabault. Two very talented engineers joined us, Cyril Sagonero and Simon Baudry, and I met Mark Logan which became a mentor.
I pursued a PhD in the FLOWERS team at INRIA supervised by Manuel Lopes and Pierre-Yves Oudeyer. My thesis focused on developing a novel algorithm for self-calibrating interactive systems, which was awarded by a national thesis price by Cédric Villani (who later invited me to contribute to the French report on AI). During my PhD, I collaborated with Iñaki Iturrate and Luis Montesano for work on BCI, and Samuel Barrett and Peter Stone at UTAustin for work on ad-hoc teams.
During my engineering studies at INSA, I had the luck to study abroad at DTU (Denmark) where I met Charles Capaday, to do an internship in the BioCircuits Institute at UCSD (US) under the supervision of Ramón Huerta, and to do my Master thesis in the BIOROB lab at EPFL under the supervision of Auke Jan Ijspeert. Those were my first experiences with research.
I wish to thank them all for their respective roles in my personal and professional development.
