testimonial

Research & teaching

A RESEARCH EXCHANGE IN THE USA, AT THE MUNSELL COLOR SCIENCE LABORATORY (MCSL) IN ROCHESTER

“I am delighted with this stay, which has given me a great deal of confidence in the skills I have acquired throughout my thesis. The experience at RIT allowed me to complete one of the two main studies of my thesis which aims to quantify the residual errors after applying a color correction on an image.”
Emilie Robert, PhD

CASAC CHAIR (DASSAULT AVIATION)

“Air systems architecture with humans in the loop”

PERIOD: 2015-2020
PERIOD: 2021-2023

GOAL: To study different aspects of human-machine collaboration. The challenge is to make civil and military air operations safer, more robust and more efficient, while guaranteeing complete control for crews. The systems considered are often operated in complex situations; they therefore have advanced automatisms to carry out their missions in a more autonomous way, always under human control, by relying on decision making algorithms from the field of artificial intelligence.

DISPOSITION:

  1. Expert function path around the notion of “air systems architect
  2. A Research Program

CEDAR CHAIR (AIRBUS)

“Chair for Eco-design of Aircrafts

PERIOD: 2013-2018
PERIOD: 2019-2024

GOAL: To contribute to the sustainable development of air transport by working on the definition and evaluation of innovative transport aircraft concepts including the introduction of innovative technologies in aircraft design.

PROVISION:
3 curricula:

  1. Aeronautics and Environment Certificate
  2. International scholarships for excellence
  3. Student Project Portfolio

→ 1 research program
