is a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan. He passed the Agrégation (french professional
teaching qualification) in 1994 and graduated in 1995. He obtained his PhD in 2000 from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan under the
supervision of Professor P. Ladevèze on the topic of "Damage meso-modelling of a 2.5D C/C composite". He passed his habilitation thesis
to supervise PhDs on "Digital images and mechanics of composite materials and biological tissues". He is now Associate Professor at
"Université Paul Sabatier". He teaches mainly in the mechanical engineering department of the "IUT 'A' Paul Sabatier", but he also gives
master classes focused on "Photomechanics". He conducts his research at Clement Ader Institute. He is also the head of the team "Identification
and Control of Thermic and Mechanical Properties" (5 researchers). His main interests are the experiment/simulation dialog and the identification
of constitutive parameters. In particular, he developed identification techniques to retrieve constitutive parameters from full field measurements.
He participated several times to CNRS summer school, and he has coauthored chapters in 3 books on this subject. He has also been involved in the
development of several measurement techniques such as Digital Image Correlation (DIC), Digital Volume Correlation (DVC), Stereo Digital Image
Correlation (SDIC), Multiscale DIC, etc. In addition, He has significant experience in the characterization of composite materials, and more
generally in experimental mechanics.
