Augustin Saucan

Augustin Saucan received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Timisoara, Romania in 2010, the M.S. in Signal, Image, Embedded Systems and Control from the University of Rennes 1, France and the Engineering degree from IMT Atlantique (formerly Télécom Bretagne), France both in 2012. During 2010-2012, he was the recipient of the Eiffel Excellence scholarship.  In 2016, A. Saucan received the Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications from IMT Atlantique. His work focused on developing multitarget tracking algorithms for sonar phased arrays. From 2016 to 2017, A. Saucan was with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of McGill University, Canada where he worked as a post-doctoral researcher on multi-sensor tracking and sequential Monte Carlo methods. From 2017 to 2019, A. Saucan joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Syracuse University where he continued to work on multi-sensor tracking and on self-localization and tracking with networks of mobile agents. Since April 2019, A. Saucan joined the Wireless Information and Network Sciences Laboratory at MIT where he conducts research on node deployment and reinforcement learning in addition to localization and tracking algorithms.
