PhD award of the Fondation Mines-Télécom

I have been awarded best PhD thesis from the Fondation Mines-Télécom!

Every year, a prize honors the best PhD thesis from the Futur & Ruptures program (co-funded by the Fondation Mines-Télécom and the Carnot institute Télécom & Société numérique).


After presenting the work I have done during my PhD at the Journée Futur & Ruptures (a day organized every year by the Fondation Mines-Télécom to present the work achieved during the PhD they funded), four of us were selected as finalists for the PhD award.

I then made a video (of 3 minutes, in french) summing up my work (long way to go before being a youtuber..!). The prizes were announced during the special event organized by the Fondation, which was held on the 27th of March at the BNP Parisbas headquarters in Paris.
