Tips for PhD students

Student projects

As research topics change continuously, contact me to know available projects topics for RES380/RES381/RES841/Projet Libre.

I usually give the student a research problem we (=me and my PhDs) haven't studied yet, but we are interested in investigating (the student is also given some instruments to start with).

Such a project is generally useful in assessing whether the problem is indeed worth investigating, and that may become scientific publications some month of PhD work later.

Below, I report some examples contrasting the early student project and the more mature publication:

In the case of projects in the context of INF570 at Ecole Polytechnique, it is not excluded that students project are (with some extensions) directly published in regular venues
