  Pascal Giard,
Professor at the department of electrical engineering.
His specialty is halfway between computers and electronics. Its main area of application: communications (wireless communication, storage memory, fiber optics). Pascal Giard creates and integrates algorithms for digital systems so that they are as efficient as possible, that is, they do the work required by providing sufficient quality, but with the lowest possible level of resources. . In the last decade, Pascal Giard specialized in an even more specialized expertise: error correcting codes. These are systems that detect and correct errors in communications. He is particularly interested in polar codes, recently incorporated into the 5G wireless communication standard.
