She has been the coordinator of international programs like TOPBIO (TwO Photon absorbers for BIOmedical applications) a FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Networks (ITN) and principal investigator in numerous interdisciplinary projects.
Caroline Boudoux – Pr. at École Polytechnique de Montréal, co-President/co-Founder of Castor Optics
Caroline Boudoux, PhD, obtained her PhD in 2007 from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology under the joint mentorship of Brett E. Bouma and Guillermo J. Tearney. She then studied coherent control applied to nonlinear microscopy at École Polytechnique (France) under Emmanuel Beaurepaire and Manuel Joffre before joining the Engineering Physics department of École Polytechnique Montréal in 2007 as an assistant professor. She is now an associate professor and a faculty member of the Biomedical Engineering Institute. She is currently a visiting scholar at Stanford University.Her research focuses on biomedical optics, particularly the translation of optical diagnostics technologies for clinical applications in the fields of head and neck surgery. In 2013, she co-founded Castor Optics, a spin-off company commercializing double-clad fiber optics couplers.
Ramatou Bello Doua – Research engineer - Alphanov (cancelled)
Ramatou Bello Doua is currently a research and development engineer at Alphanov in the laser and fiber team. She holds a PhD in Optics from the University of Bordeaux 1. Her doctoral subject research was on the study of the Ytterbium doped fiber laser and amplifier
Marion Paoletti - Policy Officer for equality between women and men at the University of Bordeaux
Marion Paoletti is associate professor of political science at the University of Bordeaux, she’s member of the center Emile Durkheim. Since July 2014, she is Policy Officer for equality between women and men at the University of Bordeaux ? She recently published “France : feminist or antifeminist?” (with Christine Bard) in Travail, genre et société ( 32, 2014, pp. 141-163).
Christine Lagabrielle – Associate Professor in psychology of labour and organizations (gender studies), Laboratory EA 4139 Psychology, Health and Quality of Life, University of Bordeaux
Several of her research are focused on gender stereotypes and difficulties faced by women in male-dominated jobs. These studies investigate how some individual factors (satisfaction, self-efficacy, organizational commitment, perception of gender identity conflict...) and some organizational factors (tactics of organizational socialization, social support...) influence the intention to leave or remain in jobs traditionally held by men.
