PhD student in medical imaging
Yann Thanwerdas graduated from the French Engineering school CentraleSupélec. He has a master’s degree in applied mathematics, and he is currently a PhD student in medical imaging in Epione project team at Inria Sophia Antipolis. Yann works in the domain of geometric statistics, which aims at considering the geometric properties of the data in statistical analyses. This leads to work in non-linear spaces of data and the main challenge is to define standard statistical procedures in these non-linear spaces and to implement them. Yann is also interested in the new methods in education, especially in mathematics. He initiated a tutoring project in CentraleSupélec between senior and junior students and he intensely contributed to the building of the school’s new engineering curriculum. Today, besides his PhD thesis, Yann teaches mathematics at Université Côte d’Azur.
