A tool which generate images as seen by the retina has been developed previously.

This tool is taking into account the aberrations of the glass and the eye.

The aim of the internship is to analyze these retinal images to extract information and thus creating a visual acuity model.

Inside the modelisation and simulation team of Essilor, my internship goal was to implement a new eye-spectacles model with wavefront characterization inspired from an existing one in MATLAB.

In particular, I have adapted the Navarro eye-model to match with ametropic cases. I have also validate the wavefront computation with external tools like Zemax or infinitesimal computation of prescription.

At the end I just began to look at neural network to try to implement a brain identification of pictures.

The main task is to implement a swept source OCT system that can be used for wavefront measurement using the principle of digital adaptive optics.

The tasks involved are the design of the OCT system that uses descanning of the single illumination spot of the retina, with optics, that project an OCT guide star beam selected areas of the human retina.

After the design, the unit will be implemented with support from the workshop with rapid prototyping machines. The operation of the system needs appropriate software that will also allow synchronization with the OCT data recording.


Master's degree, Automatic & signal and images processing

Université Paris-Saclay
2018 - 2019

After a basic education in automatic, signal and image processing, students can choose between elective options that allow them to deepen the areas concerned, with a strong application opening towards robotics, the medical and the energy networks, target areas of major societal challenges.

The internships offered come from public research laboratories and industrial organizations.

The strengths of the Master are the novelty of the proposed methodologies, its societal relevance, the partnership of the project’s leading institutions: the Paris-Saclay University institutions, the Toulouse ISAE, and public research laboratories and industrial organizations.

Students will master the fundamentals of the course and the various in-depth studies provided by university specialists.

Master of Engineering (MEng), Optic, Photonics, Physics

Institut d'Optique Graduate School
2015 - 2019

The Institut d'Optique Graduate School is set at Palaiseau in the campus of ParisTech and Paris-Saclay, at the south of Paris. This school trains engineers with very different experiences: from the general engineer to the researcher in optics and photonics, and even engineers in finance and entrepreneurs.

University Degree, Biomedical/Medical Engineering

Université Paris-Saclay
2015 - 2019

It is mainly intended for engineers or for academics trained in exact sciences and preparing a thesis at the interface with biology. The goal is to train future executives in the biomedical industry, with a thorough knowledge of the hospital environment and bio-industries associated with research strategy skills. The challenge is to allow them to interact effectively with their physician, pharmacist or biologist colleagues in multidisciplinary science programs.

The degree offers engineering students the opportunity to follow a number of modules on different biomedical themes.

Followed modules :

  • Employment in the Life Sciences
  • Medical innovation by Biotechs and Medtechs
  • Initiation in physiology, biology and cell culture
  • Pathological states of the human cell
  • Cancer Care
  • Immersion in a hospital environment

Departments :

  • Operating theater
  • Dermatology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Anatomo-Pathology
  • BMP Medical Imagery
