Research Scientist, INRIA
location: LIRMM (Montpellier)

My research concerns functional rehabilitation, mainly involving electrical stimulation and neuroprostheses. My expertise is more precisely movement artificial control.

The applications I am currently investigating are: FES-cycling in spinal cord injured (SCI) indivduals, gait correction in post stroke hemiplegia,  transfer assistance in SCI. I also have an important contribution in motion reconstruction using inertial measurement unit. My work relies on basic studies in human and animal sensori-motor control.

Keywords: bipedal locomotion, biped robots, model predictive control, rehabilitation, FES, postural control, sensori-motor physiology, neuroprosthetics.
