Teaching

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. I supervise lab activities and undergraduate projects and training. I accomplish my teaching duties at IUT de Bordeaux (Département Mesures Physiques).

  • 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).

  • Thesis defence in TuDelft (NL)

    In other countries: I have given a number of invited seminaries in Europe at Master and PhD level, and participated to PhD examination committees (Germany, Netherlands and Italy).

PhD supervision

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:

Anca Gheorghe, France’s Aerospace Valley award, 2014

Pascal Simon, European PhD Days – Airbus award, 2009

Alexandre Falcoz, 3AF (French Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) award, 2015
