Recent publications


Before joining Polytechnique Montreal's Department of Electrical Engineering, Jerome Le Ny was a Postdoctoral Researcher with the GRASP Laboratory (robotics) and the PRECISE Center for Embedded Systems at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Ecole Polytechnique, France, in 2001, then completed a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2003, and a Ph.D. degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 2008. His research interests include robust and stochastic control with applications to autonomous and networked embedded systems, transportation systems, and the associated computational methods supporting the design of complex systems.
