"If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem" - Jiddu Krishnamurit (Indian philosopher, 1895 - 1986)
I am Professor of Mechanical Engineering with a specialty in mechanics of materials and computational mechanics. Prior to joining Cal State LA, I was Professor in a higher education school of engineer: Centrale Lille. I am still having interaction with my former institution and my research are developped in a synergy between France and USA where I am developping activities in the field of Bio Medical Engineering.

My reserach activities are based on the triptych of mechanics of materials: experimental characterizationm constitutive modelling, and numerical and computational methods.
I am more focused on soft polymers and bio-polymers. My activities can be summarized in 3 fields:
- Behavior, and damage of synthetic polymers
- Behavior of human soft tissue and medical implants,
- Development and design of Medical Devices for patient-specific surgery.
Additional information on my activities can be found on my website
