Pierre Thalamy

Pierre Thalamy received his M.Sc. degree in Computer Science with high honors from Grenoble Institute of Technology - Ensimag, France in 2017. He is currently Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Bourgogne Franche-Comté, in the Computer Science in the Optimization, Mobility, NetworkIng (OMNI) team at the Department of Computer Science for Complex Systems (DISC) of Institut FEMTO-ST, France. He works under the supervision of Prof. Julien Bourgeois, and Assoc. Prof. Benoît Piranda. His thesis is about the design of efficient 3-dimensional self-reconfiguration methods for building programmable matter using modular robotic systems. He is involved in the Programmable Matter, VisibleSim, CO2Dim, and Claytronics projects. His current research interests include self-reconfiguration and locomotion using modular robotics systems. Within the context of the Programmable Matter project, he aims to improve upon existing methods of 3D modular robot self-reconfiguration, aiming to make interactive Computer-Aided Design (CAD) using this technology a reality.
