Mathias Delahaye
PhD student in AI

Passionate about engineering, Mathias joined the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Douai in 2015 after completing a preparatory course in mathematics, physics and engineering sciences in Paris. During his engineering training, he specializes in the major "Information and Communication Systems Engineering (ISIC)" which will allow him to expand his knowledge in Computer Science, but also to discover the industrial world through several internships in structures of different sizes and types. Upon graduation, he did a short internship at the École Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées Bretagne (ENSTA Bretagne), where he discovered FPGAs and their numerous fields of application before finally joining the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) as a PhD student in the Immersive Interaction research Group (IIG) directed by Dr. Ronan Boulic. His thesis aims at allowing a user to have and to appropriate a virtual body (avatar) in a virtual world when the proportions of this avatar are different from those of the user. An important part of this research is therefore to evaluate the human tolerance towards distortions (conflict) voluntarily introduced between what the person does (proprioception) and what the person sees (avatar). In parallel to the research, he will devote himself to teaching and will be a teaching assistant for the Information, Computation, Communication (ICC) course, will teach the practical part of the Virtual Reality (VR) course and will supervise several semester projects.
