Isabelle FANTONI


I am graduated from the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC), in France and I received the Master of Science in Electronic System Design at the University of Cranfield in England (double degree), both in 1996. I received the Master in Control Systems, in 1997 and the PhD degree, with the European label, in Non-linear Control for Underactuated Mechanical Systems, in 2000 from the University of Technology of Compiègne, in France. Between October 2001 and August 2017, I was a permanent Researcher at Heudiasyc laboratory, UTC, in Compiègne, France, employed by the French National Foundation for Scientific Research (CNRS) and since October 2013, CNRS Research Director. Since September 2017, I joined the LS2N laboratory, Nantes, France.

I am an IEEE member, since 2002.
