Teaching activity

  • Responsible for the ”Embedded Systems” branch of the SISEA (Signal, Images, Embedded Systems and Control) Master by Research (M2R) of Univ. Rennes.
  • Teaches mainly in the Electronics and Computer Engineering (SNUM) department of ENSSAT (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Sciences Appliquées et de Technologie), a graduate engineering school of the University of Rennes 1 and in the Master SISEA.
  • PSL-ITI (Paris Sciences & Lettres (PSL) Research University – Institute for Technology and Innovation), Innovative Technologies for Health program

This year (2020), I teach two courses at ENSSAT: VLSI Integrated Circuits Design Methodologies, and VHDL – a Hardware Description Language for Simulation and Logic Synthesis.

Keywords: VLSI Design, RTL and Logic Synthesis, High-Level Synthesis, System-on-Chip, Optimization of Embedded Software, Low-Power Digital Systems, Discrete Signal & Systems, Digital Signal Processing, Wireless Sensor Networks
