Teaching & Research Dean DSIA


I am Professor at ESIEE Paris since 1996, where I teach (statistical) signal processing, communication systems, machine learning, programming, … I have been the head of the specialization in Telecommunication and signal processing and the head of the engineer specialization in DataScience and Artificial Intelligence. Dean of Faculty between 2016-march 2023, I am currently the Dean for Research namely in charge of representing, advocating the research interests of the Faculty, advising, organizing,.. As for my personal Research, I work for a long time around information mesures, divergences and generalized entropies. I have also worked on some functional inequalities. More recently I am involved in several projects in machine learning apllied to civil engieeringand social sciences. I like to develop new algorithms or data analysis tailored to applications, namely for communication systems, biological processes, …

I have been the head of the “Telecommunication and Signal Processing” engineer specialization for many years. Since 2015, I am the founder and head between 2015-2022 of the “DataScience and Artificial Intelligence” engineer specialization. We already have current and alum students with fascinating works in datascience.

Old things

Des trucs plutôt pas trop récents. Les choses évoluent : les “polys” se font sous format de pages web, avec des éléments interactifs, des questionnaires intégrés, et sont mis à disposition via un LMS (Learning management System). Les examens se font sur machine ou par QCM. etc. Voilà, donc c’est des archives, jusqu’à ce qu’on y revienne.
