Firas Abi-Farraj

Researcher at CNRS


Short bio

I graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from the Lebanese University in 2011.
I then started my M.Sc. studies in Mechanical Engineering at the American University of Beirut where I was a research assistant at the the Vision and Robotics lab from October 2011 till March 2013.

In April 2013, I took a position as a production chain consultant at Murex Syetems (Software Engineering) alongside my masters. I got my M.Sc. degree in May 2014. After spending a couple of years as a consultant in industry, I switched back to the technical track in September 2015 and joined CNRS for a Ph.D. in robotics.

From January 2018 to July 2018, I was a visiting PhD student at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the Munich Region, Germany, under the supervision of Dr.-Ing. Christian Ott and Dr. Maximo Roa.

I got my Ph.D. in the Rainbow (previously Lagadic) group at IRISA / INRIA in Rennes under the supervision of Dr. Paolo Robuffo Giordano in December 2018 and I am currently a post-doctoral researcher with the group.
