Two scientists from the Côte d’Azur have been awarded the prestigious CNRS Silver Medal of Talents 2023.
Jean-Paul Ampuero, Director of Research at IRD in Geoazur (CNRS/IRD/OCA/UCA), and Laure Blanc-Feraud, director of Research at CNRS in the Laboratory of Computer Science, Signals and Systems of Sophia Antipolis – I3S. (CNRS/UCA – Morpheme Team I3S/INRIA/UBV) were honored for their exceptional contribution and originality in their respective research fields, recognized at the national and international level.
His creativity, rigor, and implications have been recognized with several national and international distinctions. He has revolutionized our understanding of seismic rupture through his innovative research, which provides a theoretical foundation on the subject.
In addition, he has developed an innovative method of imaging large earthquakes and made a significant contribution to solving the problem of seismicity induced by human activity. He highlighted the need to integrate dynamic rupture modeling and shed light on the mechanisms that halt earthquakes.
His recent work on distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) in seismology has also established rigorous mathematical foundations for data processing and interpretation in this emerging field.
She has developed innovative variational methods to obtain precise images. She is the originator of the blind deconvolution algorithm used for satellite image deblurring, developed on behalf of CNES.
In addition, she contributed to the creation of a prototype of optical super-resolution microscope, which surpassed the diffraction limit, thanks to her innovative reconstruction algorithm.
Laure Blanc-Feraud continues her research by utilizing artificial intelligence to exploit data and further improve image resolution.
This prestigious award highlights the excellence of research in the French Riviera region and the significance of fundamental research for our society.
