My academic life:

I am breton and I live in Quebec since 1993. I got my bachelor in geology at university of Montreal and I made my master thesis in applied geophysics and geostatistics at École Polytechnique de Montréal. During that period, I studied spontaneous potential and geostatistical analysis of GPR data for hydrogeological applications. I did my PhD in stochastic tomography in the same lab. During my PhD I developped a freeware bh_tomo  (Gloaguen et al., 2004, Giroux et al., 2007) with my good friend Bernard Giroux. In 2007, we established the “hydrogeophysical association of Quebec” Association d’Hydrogéophysique du Québec that aims at improving the links between academia and the end users, i.e. governmental agencies and consulting companies. In 2004, I moved to united states to work on modeling and inversion of green  house gases at AOS and GFDL in Princeton. In 2005, I came back to Montreal (in a grey bus) to join the geostatistical groupe at McGill. I developped a multi-scale conditional simulation algorithm based on wavelet décomposition of training images. I also developped the theory of geostatistical simulation based on spatial cumulants.   In 2007, I’ve been hired  as professor in geophysics and geostatistics at Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique au centre Eau, Terre et Environnement. Since then, I work closely with many collaborators:
