Finite-time control of dynamical systems modelled by PDEs and ODEs – Application to gong type musical instruments
Supervised by Brigitte d’Andréa-Novel (Sorbonne Université – STMS), Thomas Hélie (CNRS – STMS), Lionel Rosier (Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale), David Roze (CNRS – STMS). Thesis within French National Research Agency project Finite4SoS.


Electromechanical engineer of Ghent University, specialized in automation. He wrote his master’s thesis about nonlinear model predictive control at the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control of the University of Stuttgart. Subsequently, he pursued the master ATIAM, during which he did a research internship about the identification of systems modelled by Volterra series in the S3AM team. As a PhD student, he now applies automation to instrumental acoustics, and works more precisely on the control of gong type musical instruments.
