His academic skills are in random matrix theory applied to statistics, machine learning, signal processing and wireless communications. In 2021, he decided to stop working in the field of applied mathematics and to devote his research time and efforts to reshaping research and teaching in preparation for the coming post-industrial era: education in the Anthropocene, development of lowtech, ecology of dismantling. He is the winner of the 2021 Glavieux prize from the IEEE/SEE, the 2013 bronze medal from the French CNRS in the "science of information and its interactions" section, the 2013 IEEE ComSoc Outstanding Young Researcher Award (EMEA region ), and the 2011 EEA/GdR ISIS/GRETSI prize for the best doctoral thesis.
