How to join us

If you are interested in exploring the edge-cutting subjects in-between AI, electrical engineering and automation, particularly our research topics, there are several ways to join us:

Some PhD scholarships (from the sponsors such as ANR France, European Union, etc.) are timely available in our group. You can consult time-to-time the news I publish on this site.

For foreign students, there are some scholarships offered by CampusFrance: As the above case, if you find some matched scholarship, you are welcome to contact me to prepare the application together.
For Chinese students who wish to apply CSC (China Scholarship Council) joint-training or full PhD programs, please contact me as soon as possible. Sometimes, I have PhD/Postdoc proposals within the CSC-Centrale program in this website:
If you have other PhD finances…
