Research background

2014-2015

Secondment to the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)

Methods and tools for the design of static power converters

2012-2013

“Sabbatical year” between LAPLACE (UMR 5213 CNRS – INPT - UPS) and Liebherr Toulouse Aerospace

Development of a software tool for the pre-design of static power converters: losses and weight evaluation.
Project followed by Toulouse Tech Transfer (http://www.toulouse-tech-transfer.com) and in collaboration with an industrial company of Toulouse.

2006-2012

Maître de conférences at LAPLACE (UMR 5213 CNRS – INPT - UPS)

  • High current / low voltage power converter topologies connected to electrochemical components: research of best compromises of efficiency and power to weight ratio [1].
    Project: Hybridizing of an emergency electrical network with a lithium-ion battery (initiated by Direction Générale de l’aviation Civile).
  • Modelling and characterization of lithium-ion batteries in electromechanical chains [2, 3] .
    Projects: solar vehicle of the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, and the "More Electrical Aircraft" (initiated by Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile).
