Dr. Grégoire Danoy is a Research Scientist at the University of Luxembourg and Deputy-Head of the Parallel Computing and Optimisation Group (PCOG). He received his Industrial Engineer degree in Computer Science from the Luxembourg University of Applied Sciences (IST) in 2003. He obtained his Master in Web Intelligence in 2004 and his PhD in Computer Science in 2008 from the Ecole des Mines of Saint-Etienne, France.
His main research interests include artificial intelligence techniques applied to unmanned autonomous systems, satellite communications, vehicular networks, bioinformatics, high-performance and cloud computing.
With more than 15 years of experience in Artificial Intelligence and Mobile Networks, Dr. Danoy co-authored multiple successful research and technology transfer project proposals for which he was PI or led work packages, at both national (FNR), EU (Eureka, H2020, EDA) and international (ONRG - US Navy) levels. He is currently PI of the FNR CORE ADARS project on Automating the Design of Autonomous Robot Swarms.
His contributions led to more than 140 publications in high-level international scientific conferences and journals, and to the co-authorship of a book in Wiley on “Evolutionary Algorithms for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks”. He additionally obtained a best paper award at the IEEE Cybconf 2017 conference and an award from the US Navy-ONRG in 2018 for his research on UAV swarms.
