Antoine Crinière

I am a research engineer (PhD) at Inria in Rennes.

Research interests / field of activity

Among various research fields addressed at I4S, I split my activities between research activities and software development mostly for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) problems, modeling and smart cities data management.

  • Infrared imaging and heat transfer modeling
  • Inverse problems and interacting particle-Kalman filter
  • Autonomous sensors systems and Geographic Information System (GIS, OGC-SWE)
  • Geostatistics and geophysical data management
  • GPGPU computing

Short bio

I graduated with an engineering degree from ISTIA Angers (France) in computer science in 2011 followed by a master degree in signal processing. In 2014 I received the PhD degree, on the topic of non-destructive testing and long term monitoring through infrared imaging from Ecole Centrale Nantes (ECN) under the supervision of Fréderic Bourquin. Then I joined Inria for a first research engineer position within the ADT Cloud2SM project and since 2016 I am part of the INTERCOM project.

Recent highlights

  • Best overall paper award at SPIE Thermosense 2017
  • Multiple software submissions to the French Agency for the Protection of IT Programs (APP)

Recent projects

  • Equipex SenseCity (since 2012), PhD student then R&D engineer. Infrared SHM systems development and in-situ deployment.
  • Cloud2SM (2014-2016), R&D engineer. Autonomous infrared system development and standardization, inverse heat transfer models and particle filter improved by GPGPU.
  • Labex CominLabs INTERCOM (2016-2018), R&D engineer. Analyze geostatistical models to propose an innovative way to compress and access multi-sourced data like smart cities sensing strategies.
