Yves Papegay

Mathematician, computer scientist and computer algebra graduate, Yves Papegay has been an enthusiast of Wolfram’s Mathematica software since Version 1.0. Since 1994, Papegay has conducted research at Inria in the South of France. He currently leads a team specializing in wired robots and service robotics, working on modeling and simulation tools, symbolic computation and interval analysis.

Papegay designed and developed the original SymbolicC package now integrated in the Wolfram Language for C code generation. He also authored an integrated framework for modeling and simulation based on Mathematica and used by Airbus in the aircraft flight simulation process. He received a 2014 Wolfram Innovator Award.

Papegay has extensive experience teaching mathematics and computer science to post-high-school, undergraduate and graduate students. He has been involved in several computer algebra courses for industry and education in which he lectured on Mathematica. In 2015, he cofounded Informathiques.fr, a nonprofit organization aimed at promoting experimental approaches to mathematics and algorithmic applications and organizing several Wolfram Language summer schools in Oxford.
