Françoise Lamnabhi-Lagarrigue, researcher at the Laboratory of Signals and Systems (L2S) has been awarded the Irène Joliot-Curie prize for the woman scientist of the year for her research in automation, both theoretical and applied. Her solutions have multiple applications for dynamic systems, and focus on renewable energies and neuroscience.
Awarded on November 26 at the Academy of Sciences, this prize is granted by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and Airbus.
Automation is the science of dynamic systems and their control. The discipline is generally interested in all moving systems that have inputs and outputs," says Françoise Lamnabhi-Lagarrigue. Automation develops methods and tools to model these dynamic systems. Their analysis and control enable tasks to be carried out or criteria to be optimised. Automation calls upon mathematics, signal processing, computer science and knowledge of various fields of application. "This science is used in a wide variety of applications.
The Signals and Systems Laboratory (L2S) is a joint research unit (UMR8506) of the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), CentraleSupélec (CentraleSupélec) and the University of Paris-Sud (UPS).
