C. Pradalier is Associate Professor at GeorgiaTech Lorraine, the French campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology (a.k.a. GeorgiaTech) since September 2012. He presented his HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches - Certification of Ability to Supervise Research) at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse on June 5th, 2015.
From November 2007 until December 2012, C. Pradalier has been deputy director in the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zürich. In this role, he was the technical coordinator of the V-Charge project (IP, 2010-2014) and also involved in the development of innovative robotic platforms such as autonomous boats for environment monitoring or prototype space rovers funded by the European Space Agency. He is a founding member of the ETH start-up Skybotix, within which he was responsible for software development and integration.
From 2004 to 2007, C. Pradalier was a research scientist at CSIRO, Australia. He was then involved in the development of software for autonomous large industrial robots and an autonomous underwater vehicle for the monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
He received his PhD in 2004 from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble (INPG) on the topic of autonomous navigation of a small urban mobility system and he is Ingénieur from the National Engineering School for Computer Science and Applied Math in Grenoble (ENSIMAG). He defended his "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" (Authority to Supervise Research) in 2015 on the topic of "Autonomous Mobile Systems for Long-Term Operations in Spatio-Temporal Environments" at the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse (INPT).
