Gregory Mermoud

Biography

Grégory Mermoud graduated in Computer Science from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (I&CEPFL) in spring 2006. During his master thesis, he investigated agent-based approaches for modeling self-assembling chemical networks under the guidance of Prof. Alcherio Martinoli and Prof. Kay Severin.
After graduation, Grégory worked as a research assistant both in the Laboratory of Distributed Intelligent Systems and Algorithms (DISALENAC) and the Laboratory of Microsystems (LMIS1STI) headed by Prof. Alcherio Martinoli and Prof. Juergen Brugger, respectively.
Since September 2007, Grégory is pursuing graduate studies at the Laboratory of Distributed Intelligent Systems and Algorithms and the Laboratory of Microsystems at EPFL.
