Research interests

I am a research scientist with ONERA and Université de Toulouse.

My research interests include Data Science, Machine Learning and Decision Science applied to aviation, with a particular focus on optimisation, anomaly and pattern detection.
Applications range from air traffic management, operations, predictive maintenance, safety analyses and risk assessment.
