Lead, Cognitive Systems Integration
Sylvain is Senior Human Systems Engineer at Aptima, Inc. He leads Aptima’s Cognitive Systems Integration (CSI) capability, which focuses on human factors analyses and delivery of prototype technologies. The domains of application of CSI technology cover a wide range: patient engagement systems in healthcare, medical decision-support systems, military (re-)planning technology, interfaces for the supervisory control of teams of unmanned systems, etc. At Aptima, Sylvain additionally provides expertise and leadership in human-centered design processes: requirements definition, design development and implementation, and system evaluation. His research focuses on human-automation collaborative systems, multimodal UIs, human-in-the-loop experimentation, and the statistical analysis of human-centered system data. Prior to joining Aptima, Sylvain conducted research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), focusing on designing and testing of collaborative decision-support systems, specifically in military environments.
Sylvain holds an S.M. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT and a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from the Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité (Supélec, France). He is a member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, the Association for Computing Machinery, and the DoD Human Factors Engineering Technical Advisory Group.
