Education
 
  • 1997 : H.D.R. (Habilitation à diriger des recherches) in mathematics of Paris VI. HDR Dissertation : Adaptive Meshing and Application to Finite Elements. Developed the theory and the implementation of the general scheme of adaptive meshing for finite element computation. The HDR research results led to several journal publications, a book and several meshing softwares.
  • 1993 : Ph.D. in mathematics of Paris VII. Ph.D. Dissertation : Connection Graph and Delaunay Triangulation. Developed several algorithms for fast Delaunay triangulation and meshing based on the Delaunay triangulation. The Ph.D. research results led to 4 journal publications and a 3D triangulation software.
  • 1989 : D.E.A. (MS equivalent) in mathematics of Paris VII 
  • 1988 : BS in pure and applied mathematics of Paris VII
  • 1987 : D.E.A. in Robotics of Paris VI
  • 1986 : BS in Electrical Engineering of Paris VI
