François Pacaud

PhD Student in Stochastic Optimization


About

Between 2015 and 2018, I was a PhD Student in Stochastic Optimization at CERMICS, under the supervision of Michel De Lara and Pierre Carpentier. I am now working at Artelys.

The goal of my thesis was to apply decomposition/coordination methods to the optimal control of microgrid. The PDF version of the thesis is available here, and the slides of the PhD defense are available here.
