​Swan Gerome

is business developer for the CEA-Leti department most dedicated to sensor integration and autonomy and embedded data-processing activity. He was previously European sales manager for Dolphin Integration. He holds a master's degree in marketing and sales management and a technical degree in statistics and data processing from Grenoble IAE.

​Philippe Robert

is business development manager and senior expert at CEA-Leti for MEMS sensors and actuators activities. After serving various positions in the sensor industry, he joined CEA-Leti in 2001 as project manager for RF-MEMS research and was manager of the MEMS Sensors Group from 2003 to 2013, and head of the microsystems department from 2013 to 2019. He holds a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and a M.Sc. degree in optical electronic from Grenoble INP.

​Emmanuel Hardy

is a researcher in the Integrated Circuits for Power Management, Sensors and Actuators Laboratory. He joined CEA-Leti in 2020. His current research interests cover sensor-data processing and circuits for tiny machine learning. He previously worked as an audio mixed-signal electronics and algorithms engineer at Wolfson Microelectronics and Cirrus Logic. He holds a master's degree in microelectronics from the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Aix-Marseille University.

​Franck Badets

joined CEA-Leti in 2011. As a senior scientist, his research activity focuses on the design of ultralow-power sensor readout circuits for IoT applications with a special interest in event- based wake-up sensors. He holds a Ph.D. degree in electronics from University of Bordeaux and the French accreditation to direct research (HdR). 


Dave Monk 

Dr. David Monk received his B.S. in ChE from the University of Iowa in 1989, his Ph.D. in ChE with the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) in 1993 from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MBA from Arizona State University in 1998.Dr. Monk joined Motorola in 1993 and wo rked for the first three years in the Sensor Packaging Technology Center before moving into technical program management for MEMS products.  From 2001 through 2005, he managed the sensor R&D for Motorola's Sensor Products Division.  After the spinout of Freescale Semiconductor, Dave became the Automotive Sensor Product Manager for the Sensor business unit from 2006-2013.  He spent 2012 – 2015 revitalizing the Freescale Sensor R&D role with the installation of a new platform MEMS flow that enables fabrication of a breadth of physical sensors in a single process flow.  

Since 2015, Dr. Monk is Vice President and General Manager of the Product Line Motion Sensors at NXP Semiconductors.Dave has been active in the MEMS/MST community by participating in technical committees for the Transducers, Hilton Head, MEMS and IMAPS conferences.  He was the Technical/General Program Chair for the Hilton Head 2010/2012 Workshops, respectively.  He has published more than 50 conference papers, 10 refereed journal papers, 12 issued patents in the MEMS/MST field, and is an IEEE Senior Member.  Dr. Monk is currently the treasurer of the Transducers Research Foundation and a past Governing Council chair for the MEMS & Sensor Industry Group (MSIG), now a part of SEMI.



​Olivier Fuchs

Joined CEA-Leti in 2006 and has worked as a research engineer and project leader in various projects focusing on technologies for health applications, with a particular interest in microfluidic MEMS. Since 2015, he has been in charge of business development, focusing his activities on medical wearables and implants. He received a master's degree in physical engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technology in 2002. 

​Christelle Godin

joined CEA-Leti in 2001 working on sensor systems for smart objects. Her fields of interest are signal processing and machine learning using MEMS, as well as magnetic and physiological sensors, for motion capture, artificial tactile sensing and affective computing. She received her Ph.D. degree in field from Supaero, Toulouse. 


Omar Ben Abdelaziz Faurecia

is working on new technologies and innovation for Faurecia since 2012. He joined the cockpit of the future team in 2016 where he played a key role to develop many products and technologies for Faurecia. Today Omar is leading the innovation activities for the Cockpit of the future and working as a new technology expert for Faurecia.
