My scientifical and philosophical interest follows two axes which inspire mutuelly:

  • Axis 1. Méthodology in the understanding of the fondamental interactions in physical systems.
  • Axis 2. Méthodology in the understanding of the language interactions in the education systems.

Actually I use physical tools, for example acoustic methods, in my studies of learning system, in order to characterize quantitatively the spoken foreign language learning including Chinese Mandarin.
