Researcher with the NeCS team, Maria Laura Delle Monache has just been awarded the "France-Berkeley Fund award for high-achieving younger researchers", along with Samitha Samaranayake (Cornell University, PhD UC Berkeley). The prestigious American university is thereby rewarding the researcher's commitment to forging links between France and the United States.
A former Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes research student with the nano-D team, Maël Bosson has created a company to develop the connected and "smart" electric bike; he was also one of the first daily users of the electric bike in 2011, during his PhD.
How can disinformation - "fake news" - be traced? What are the sources of production? What are the levers of circulation and reception of disinformation on the Web and on digital platforms? This is a study topic for the Public Data Lab, an interdisciplinary network of researchers, which has just published its first results - a guide to disinformation - during the International Journalism Festival, an event that brings together thousands of journalists from Europe and the rest of the world and which took place in Perugia, Italy.
Vincent Calvez has been awarded the EMS 2016 prize for his work at the intersection between mathematics and biology. Through his research on the collective migration of bacteria within a large concentration wave, he has made a fundamental contribution to mathematical analysis and the development of new mathematical models, with applications in biology and biophysics.
After winning a silver trophy in the "collective disruption" category at the Edison Awards 2016, held in New York (USA) on 21 April, the Greentouch consortium announced its final results: its new approaches can make wireless networks over 10,000 times more energy efficient.
Imagine a dial or slider emerging from the screen of your touchscreen phone: new forms of human-computer interaction proposed by Céline Coutrix, researcher at the Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble (LIG). Her research included experiments and prototyping using the Amiqual4Home platform, and has received an award at the CHI 2016 in San José, USA.
An engineer with the Perception team at Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes, Quentin Pelorson is also a BMX champion. By developing the Flatland Tricky application - which reconstitutes figures in 3D - he has succeeded in combining his two passions.
Since 1st July 2015, the Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes ERABLE* team has been bringing together biologists and computer scientists to study interactions between species, particularly at cell level. A scientific adventure with an international dimension.

Modelling - Biological systems
Modelling biological systems, in particular at the level of the dynamics of cellular processes, is the objective of the IBIS team. Biological data are becoming ever more plentiful, but their use in estimating the mathematical parameters of a model remains an especially difficult problem. Sara Berthoumieux, a PhD student in the IBIS team, tells us about her work on the subject, carried out as part of her thesis.
