In 1989 and 1993 respectively he obtained the M.Sc. and Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Southern California, developing neural network models of sensorimotor sequence learning, including the first simulations of the role of dopamine in sensorimotor associative learning. The lead to the development of modern "reservoir computing". From 1984 to 1986 he was a Software Engineer at Data General, and from 1986 to 1993 he was a Systems Engineer at NASA/JPL/CalTech.

He is currently participating in several French and international projects in this context, including the development of next generation intelligent systems.
