Chaire Inria-AIRBUS-Conseil régional d'Aquitaine
The chaire is funding the PhD thesis of Christophe Nivot on the optimization of the assembly line of a launcher. It comprises several steps from the production of the subassemblies to the final launch. The aim of the thesis is finding the best rates of delivery of the subassemblies, the best choice of architecture (regarding stock capacities) and the best times when to stop and restart the workshops to be able to carry out twelve launches a year according to a predetermined schedule at minimal cost.
Inter-LabEx project between CPU and TRAIL
The topic of the project is "Advanced statistical methods for analysis of multidimensional databases of human brain imaging". The project focuses on the analysis of variability factors driving hemispheric specialization (HS) of the brain, a human specific character, for which a dedicated database has recently been built by GIN (Neurofunctional Imaging Group from L). GIN provides the database and performs genotyping of fifty loci potentially affecting HS. The “Probability and Statistics” group (EPS) from the LabEx CPU works on the methodological developments of statistical tools to analyze these high dimensional data. Interactions between GIN and EPS allow to identify and to characterize the best variables, to perform additional analyses, and to suggest appropriate additional variables, especially in the case of the voxel being implemented. GIN is also involved in the interpretation of the statistical results generated throughout the project.
Dr Solveig Badillo has been hired as Postdoctoral researcher in may 2014 on this project for 20 months.
