Research activities and supervision in electromagnetism :

Since September 2004, I am lecturer in the electrical engineering and compute science at the Institut of Technology (UGA/IUT1). My research lab is the G2ELab, MAGE team. I started a research activity focused on models, methods and tools for the design of magnetic microsystems whose main themes are:
  • electromagnetism modeling for pre-sizing (fast calculation, sensitivity)
  • optimization under multi-physical, technological and economic constraints
  • design robustness. Analysis of the tolerances of the systems (manufacturing, ...) on the performances being sized.
  • and the system approach: coupling of calculation methods, coupling of models.

I have supervised 3 theses on the microsystems application :
  • 28/11/2007 - Hichem CHETOUANI, « Microsystems and micromanipulation with diamagnetic levitation: design, production and application to digital microfluidic and biology », with Gibert REYNE.
  • 29/11/2007 - Lalao Harijaona RAKOTOARISON « Method and tool for the automatic generation of model for highly constrained optimization of magnetic microsystems ». with Orphée CUGAT.
  • 11/10/2011 - Phuong PHAM QUANG, « Magneto-mechanical modeling of nano switch. Reliable constrained optimization by automatic differentiation of Java programs  ». with Jean-Louis COULOMB.
  • I also collaborated on 7 theses in this field (H. Rostaing 2004, N. Achotte 2005, J. Stepanek 2005, Ch Pigot 2008, P. Kauffman 2009, H. Allag 2010, JLG Janssen 2011) which gave rise each time to one or more common publications.
More generally, I'm conducting research in magnetic components :
  • 26/05/2011 - Abdelhadi BESRI, « Modelling and optimization of high frequency planar transformers », with Jean-Pierre KERADEC.
  • 25/10/2012 - Abir REZGUI, « Electromagnetic model interoperability during design cycle through complementary supports: VHDL-AMS Language and ICAr software components », with Laurent GERBAUD.
  • 18/12/2012 - Christophe RUBECK, « High performance computation of integral formula for low frequency electromagnetism  - Integration, wavelet matrix compression and solving on GPGPU ». with Jean-Paul YONNET and Olivier CHADEBEC
  • 22/02/2018 - Mateus LEITE, « Building Reduced Order Models for Dynamical Simulation and Optimization of Numerical Electromagnetic Models », with Jean-Michel GUICHON, in co-tutelle with UFMG Brazil - João Antônio DE VASCONCELOS

Research activities and supervision in building energy:

Since 2009, I have focused my work on a system approach and concentrate my research on the field of energy efficiency of buildings. This new area is a major environmental issue; it also has such characteristics that the stakes of research and scientific locks are numerous. Thus, in the continuity of my research on the modeling, simulation, design of electromagnetic systems, I'm going deeper in methodologies related to the system simulation, the optimization and the management of uncertainties. I also tackle new topics such as optimal in-situ management and actively participate in the scientific and technical community of thermal simulation of the building (co-writing of a white paper, management platform, animation of thematic schools ...)
In the field of "energy efficiency of buildings", 7 theses supported and 4 theses in progress:
  • 18/10/2012 - Sana GAALOUL « interoperability based on modelica and software component standards for the energy simulation of buildings », with Frédéric WURTZ.
