He is currently an associate professor in the CAR research theme at IMT Lille Douai, Mines-Telecom Institute. Luc is the co-author of several research papers advocating the use of dynamic and reflective languages such as Pharo to support live programming of mobile and autonomous robots in an efficient way. Luc's long-term vision is to be able to use Jedi mind trick on mobile robots ;-) Meanwhile, he concretizes all his ideas (models and tools) in the PhaROS plateform (a Pharo client for the Robotics Operating System) to develop, debug, test, deploy, execute and benchmark robotics applications. Each year, Luc gives many computer science lectures and co-organizes events (technical days, conferences, ...). He also promotes Smalltalk (ESUG board member) and participates to its open-source implementation Pharo.
