  • Bio: I am Professeur des Universités (tenured professor) at the Sorbonne Université, in Paris, France. I am interested in the mechanisms that allow collective systems to evolve, learn and adapt in open environments. I am concerned both with natural systems (using computer simulations to understand social behaviours) and artificial systems (designing learning algorithms for collective/swarm robotic systems). My research activity is at the crossroad of computer science, biology and robotics. I am also co-head of the ANDROIDE Master program in computer science (Artificial Intelligence, Operational Research, Decision, Interaction, Robotics and Agents).
