2 Dauphine PhD's honored for their excellence in research


On December 1st 2016, two Paris-Dauphine PhD's received the Chancellerie des Universités de Paris University Prizes for their theses.

Each year since 1987, the Chancellerie des Universités de Paris awards Formal Chancellerie Prizes for scholarly excellence to selected newly hooded PhD's of all nationalities from the 17 universities and 6 grands établissements in the Île-de-France region. Prizes recognize recipients for the scholarly excellence of their theses in a broad range of disciplines including economics and management, law and political science, medicine, science, the arts and humanities, and pharmacy.

The two Dauphine PhD's were among the 2016 recipients:

Claire CHRETIEN-CIAMPI received the Louis Forest / Aguirre-Basualdo Prize, for her thesis entitled "Influence des usages des technologies de l’information sur les assemblages de contrôles". Ms. Chrétien-Ciampi prepared her thesis while working at Dauphine's DRM research center, where she was a member of the MOST team. Thesis advisor: Nicolas Berléand. Thesis defended on November 11th 2015.

« This thesis analyzes how organizations use information technology and how new IT usages change the way we regulate organizational behavior. It suggests that a new form of regulation is emerging, one that follows a 360° feed-back logic. The topic was inspired by many years of corporate experience sown with unanswered questions. I decided that a PhD was the only way to explore the issues with scientific rigor and eventually find answers that could be transformed into practice via both teaching and publications. »

Isabelle TRISTANI received the Thiessé de Rosemont / Demassieux Prize for her thesis entitled "Existence et stabilité de solutions fortes en théorie cinétique des gaz". Ms. Tristani prepared her thesis while working at CEREMADE the joint CNRS-Université Paris-Dauphine research unit (UMR n° 7534). Thesis advisor: Stéphane MISCHLER. Thesis defended on June 22nd 2015.

"My thesis analyzes the equations derived from the kinetic theory of gases (Boltzmann, Landau and Fokker-Planck). More specifically, it studies the challenge posed by solutions and how they return to equilibrium. For me, studying the kinetic theory of gases means solving exciting mathematical problems while at the same time contributing to advancing our understanding of physical phenomena."
