Dimitri Peaucelle



Brief biography

Dimitri was born in Leningrad, USSR, in March 2nd, 1974.
Due to translation from Russian (Дмитрий Посель), his first name is 'Dmitry' in (most) french administative documents. Sometimes one may also find the spellings 'Dimitry', 'Dmitri' or even 'Dimtry'. In Russian administrative domuments he is also known as Дмитрий Жанович Коновалов. Konovalov is his mother's family name.

He received the "Diplôme d'Ingénieur" (Engineers' degree) from Ecole Centrale de Lille, France, in September 1997 and the "Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies" (Masters' Degree) from University of Science and Technology of Lille, France, that same year.

From October 1997 to July 2000 he was a Ph.D. student at Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) research center of the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Toulouse, France. He received the "Diplôme de Doctorat" (Ph.D. degree) from the Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France, in July 2000 and the "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" (French Habilitation) degree from that same university in December 2014.

Since October 2001 he is CNRS Researcher and starting from October 2015 he is senior Researcher.

Research interests

His research interests are in robust control, and extend to convex optimization over linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), periodic systems, time-delay systems and direct adaptive control. He is also involved in computer-aided control design activities and leads a project for control-oriented software development. He is the main contributor to the Robust Multiobjective Control (RoMulOC) Toolbox. He has been involved in several industrial projects with aerospace partners for launcher, aircraft, and satellite robust control.
