Short Summary

My research evolves around novel approaches to information processing combined with photonics. Within this field, I made fundamental observations in the field of quantum optics and am an active member in the field of photonic AI implemented in optical Neural Networks. As a long term objective I want to establish novel substrates for neuromorphic computing.

In 2015 I obtained a permanent CNRS position as a CR2 researcher at the FEMTO-ST institute. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the IFISC in Palma de Mallorca, partially funded by a Marie-Curie IEF fellowship (2011-2013, NOVALIS).

My research has been cited over 1700 times and I have been invited to over 10 international conferences. I participated and lead multiple research projects, including projects funded by the Eurpean Comission, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Industry, the French Ministry of Education and the Volkswagen Foundation. Currently, I am a PI within the Volkswagen Foundation research project NeuoQNet, and the Burgundy - Franche-Comte young research integration project RéNTOP-IA.
