  • In LAAS, my work is integrated in the activities of ROC team (Operations Research / Combinatorial Optimization / Constraints)
    (previously MOGISA team -- I have been in charge of this team from April 2003 until September 2011).


  • My research areas concern (note that the following categories are not a partition):
  • Operations Research: Combinatorial Optimization; Scheduling.
  • Constraint Programming: Filtering algorithms; Propagation mechanisms; Energetic Reasoning.
  • Interdisciplinary studies: Optimal management of electrical energy; Human factors in transportation scheduling; Human-system cooperation (SCOOP Project, in French).
  • Applications:
  • Production planning and scheduling (workshops),
  • Transportation problems (vehicle routing),
  • Space missions (Earth observing satellites, comet landing and study):
  • ROSETTA/PHILAE mission: ESA, CNES, EnjoySpace, NASA, Wikipedia, Facebook page, and Aerospace-technology
  • Satellite Constellations
  • Universe Knowledge Systems: Mars, NETLANDER Project (in French)

  • Have a look at my publications (by year) to know more about my topical (and former) research activities.
