I am a postdoc researcher at autOCampus Project, IRIT, Université de Toulouse, under the supervision of André-Luc Beylot and Rahim Kacimi.
I was a PhD Student at Inria under the supervision of David Coudert and Christelle Caillouet as a a member of COATI, a joint project team between the Inria Centre at Université Côte d’Azur and the I3S Laboratory.
My postdoctoral research focuses on autonomous vehicles and communication. My thesis focused on optimising UAV deployment and trajectories to achieve their goals efficiently. We studied applications such as deploying flying ad-hoc networks to track mobile sensors and deploying drones to recharge the battery of static devices with wireless energy harvesting.
