CNRS Research Scientist

After studying mechanical and biomechanical engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique and then at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Mathilde completed her PhD at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR - Sorbonne University) with Nathanaël Jarrassé and Guillaume Morel. Her work, focusing on the control of arm prostheses based on user movements, was awarded the Young Talents for Women in Science Prize from the L'Oréal-UNESCO Foundation and the GDR Robotics Prize 2021.
Mathilde then pursued a post-doctoral position at ETH Zurich, in the Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory, in close collaboration with the Lake of Lucerne Institute, where she focused on the impact of visual and haptic feedback on pathological gait. She also worked on virtual reality devices for at-home therapy for post-stroke rehabilitation.
Her research activities lie at the intersection of biomechanics and robotics. They involve the analysis and modeling of movement, aiming to utilize it to control motor rehabilitation robots.
