Activités de recherche

After a PhD thesis focused on fluid dynamics and acoustics (1999) in the civil engineering field, I put my competences in dynamics, fluid mechanics, experiments and simulation into application to the transportation domain, by joining in 2001 the french road and bridges laboratory (LCPC).

Starting from tire-to-road grip to vehicle handling and road safety, my researches have been more focused on transportation energy savings since 2011, concomitantly with the merging of Inrest and LCPC into the Ifsttar institute. My research field became then the use phase of transportation infrastructure, whether for railways and roads. General aim is the reduction of use phase energies, due to traveling of trains or road vehicles, by means of a better infrastructure design or exploitation.

Since january 2020 the institute I belonged to is now part of the new french Gustave Eiffel University.
