The purpose of this website is to :

    – provide an overview and explain the internal logic of a research and training work that covers various topics
    – make a number of texts and conferences easily accessible, especially for colleagues, professionals and students

The site is available in French and English.  Although part of my work is in French, I trust there is enough English language content (publications, filmed interventions, description of research topics, etc.) on the site to satisfy the English-speaking reader.

The pictures of the site were taken by myself, except for the pictures of birds taken by J. Salpeter.
