My University on Google Maps


I graduated from École Centrale de Lyon and ENS Cachan/Rennes, and received my PhD degree from University of Rennes 1 in 2011. After 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow at Idiap Research Institute, I have been an assistant professor and I am now a full professor at University of Rennes 2. Here, I investigate dedicated machine learning methods for environmental time series.
