I have supervised over 20 PhD students, 13 postdoctoral fellows, 3 HDR (French degree for research supervision) and 7 PhD visitors (one to four months stays in my team, from Europe, Mexico and Russia). Of my past PhD students, 7 of them are University Professor or Associate Professor and all others hold major R&D positions in industrial sector (majority in aerospace). Some of them received renowned awards, for example:

As any university professor in France, about half of my working time is devoted to teaching and supervision of student projects.
At undergraduate level, I teach mainly automatic control and signal processing at IUT de Bordeaux (Département Mesures Physiques) where I supervise also lab activities, projects and training.
At graduate level, I used to teach system identification, estimation methods, fault diagnosis and numerical methods for advanced control design. I had been Deputy director and Director of doctoral studies in control, signals and systems of the Bordeaux University for several years. I continue to supervise Master projects in Automatic Control. As member of innovation comity board of the Bordeaux University, I participate to the selection/evaluation/funding process of the most innovative student projects in all disciplines (at graduate and undergraduate levels).
In other countries, I have given a number of invited lectures in Europe at Master and PhD level. Recently (May 2021) I gave a lecture at Xidian University, School of Aerospace Science and Technology, China. I have participated to many international PhD examination committees: Germany (University of Duisburg-Essen); Netherlands (Delft University of Technology) and Italy (Politecnico di Torino).
