I am a Professeur des universités at the GEII Department, IUT Nice - Côte d'Azur, and the I3S Laboratory (UMR 7271, ex-UMR 6070), University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France.

I am a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France.

Since 2016, I have been heading the Signals, Images and Systems (SIS) research team at the I3S Lab.

As coordinator of ANR Young Investigators' Project "PERSIST", I was on part-time leave at CNRS in the period 2010-2013.


I work on advanced signal processing techniques for biomedical problems and telecommunications. My activities take place in the Signal research team of the Signals, Images and Systems (SIS) research pole.

My research interests include: statistical and array signal processing, blind and semi-blind estimation, source separation and independent component analysis, higher-order statistics, matrix and tensor algebra, with applications in communications (channel identification and equalization) and biomedical signal processing (fetal electrocardiogram extraction, atrial fibrillation analysis).


  • DUT 1st year: mathematics, digital electronics, analog electronics, Java and web programming.
  • DUT 2nd year: digital signal processing.
    • MC-TNS - Traitement numérique du signal
  • École Polytechnique 5th year and MSc in Computational Biology and Biomedicine: biomedical signal processing, with emphasis on cardiac signal estimation.
    • Digital signal processing for the analysis and modeling of electrophysiological records
