Simon defended is PhD in Toulouse in February 2022, with most of his jury being remote due to COVID19 constraint. ISAE defense room was equipped with video and sound devices making it confortable despite the constraint. It was my first jury and I was very stressed, but Simon gave a good presentation with very didactic explanation on speckle and on his work. I was also happy that he got interesting comments from the jury members that lead to a good discussion.

Simon worked on the use of an ultra fast camera to detect microvascularisation patterns using dynamic speckle. He showed through the study of various image series and simulation that the coefficient from the temporal autocorrelation have better detection capacities than the contrast. If you want to know more on Simon’s work, his article was out few weeks after his defense.
