Benoit Tran

I spent most of my academic life at the Université Paris-Sud (now Université Paris-Saclay). I obtained my "agrégation" (2016), a competitive exam to become a Mathematics teacher. I then specialized through a Master in Optimization. In 2017 until 2020, I wrote my thesis at Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole des Ponts ParisTech under the joint supervision of Marianne Akian and Jean-Philippe Chancelier. I mainly studied some discrete and ideal control problems, from the development of an algorithm to solve them, to the study of more theoretical issues related to the study of such problems. I joined FGV-EMAp in 2021 as a postdoctoral fellow to continue working on discrete optimal time control issues.
