I have been awarded best PhD thesis from the Fondation Mines-Télécom!
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.
The awards were given as follow:
1st prize: Sylvain Lobry – Markovian models for information extraction in SAR images – Télécom ParisTech
2nd prize (tied):
– El Mehdi Amhoud – Coding Techniques for Space Division Multiplexed Optical Fiber Systems – Télécom ParisTech
– Yousra Bekhti – Source localization for functional brain imaging with M/EEG – Télécom ParisTech
– Ivan Gorynin – Fast Filtering and Unsupervised Estimation in Switching Markov Models – Télécom SudParis
It was a great evening, and I particularly enjoyed the interactions with the other recipients! Once again, I would like to thank the Fondation for this prize, as well as Loïc Denis, Florence Tupin, Roger Fjørtoft and Cyrielle Flosi for their advices on the video.
