PhD students awarded

  • Fidele Moufouma, SAE AwardFidele Moupfouma, who works at Bombardier Aerospace (in Montreal, Canada) and obtained a Ph. D from Telecom ParisTech (1982), has received the prestigious Arch. T. Colwell Merit Award  awarded by SAE International  for a paper presented at Toulouse in 2011, in which he demonstrated by a physico-mathematical study that “the electromagnetic coupling of lightning currents or strong fields with cables that interconnect avionic systems in common mode operate completely differently in a composite aircraft compared to a metal one. To conclude, the existing EUROCAE (Europe) or RTCA (USA) test standards for common mode systems that were developed for metal aircraft are not adapted to the reality of composite aircraft and under-estimate the effects of electromagnetic threat.April 2013
  • Matthieu Feuillet, a PHD student supervised by Thomas Bonald, who is a lecturer and researcher at Télécom ParisTech, and Philippe Robert, of Inria (National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control / the Polytechnique Engineering Graduate School, won the Gilles Kahn Prize 2012 for his thesis about “Allocation of bandwidth in large stochastic networks”.
