Welcome On My Domain

Happy to meet you, I am Jonas, Engineer in Aeronautic and HMI. I am currently PhD student in Neuroergonomics. I started my PhD in September with the ONERA (French national aerospace research center) in the south of France. Here weather is hot, wind is strong and so is our will to change the world for the best.

If my profile interests you or if you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me, I will always feel honored by your interest!

About me

"Leonardo Da Vinci combined art and science and aesthetics and engineering, that kind of unity is needed once again."

Neuroergonomics is a young field that aims to use neurophysiological factors to study ergonomics. Far from being another trend, crossing those field allows us to explore new aspects of human factors.

Human Machine Interaction

I firmly believe that all is interaction. From working on your computer to reading a map - and even cursing your shower because it is too hot - we all interact with systems in our daily life.

I have liked planes since I was a kid, and being on the other side made me love all aeronautic domain. Designing systems that match safety and security is a tough goal - and a reward when achieved.

  • 2010 - 2012

    A Painful Departure

    After my French A-level, I decided to go to CPGE training (tough preparation to competitive national exam) in maths and physics. I saw the extent of human knwoledge, and how small I was.

  • 2012 - 2015

    An Appreciated Reward

    I decided to join the ENAC (French National Aviation University), following my interest for planes. In there, I discovered many different areas within aviation - UAVs, ATM and airports. I found also a passion for computer science which I developped thanks to school and personal projects.

  • Summer 2014

    Internship at the IIL

    In order to acquire some experience within Human Machine Interaction, I joined the Interactive Informatics Laboratory of ENAC. I had the honor of working with skillful scientists who taught me a lot. I found there my conviction that "everyhing is interaction", thanks to my tutor Stephane Chatty.

  • 2014 - 2015

    Dual Degree in HMI

    I decided to specialize in HMI by following the HMI Master, the only HMI schooling in France focusing on interaction developement. I studied design, prototyping and met a lot of people amazingly inspiring.

  • 2015

    Internship at Frequentis

    To discover new cultures, I decided to do my last internship abroad. I found in Frequentis the perfect subject to put into practice all my schooling in ATM and HMI. All this was even more interesting in the wonderful city of Vienna.

  • 2015 - 2018

    PhD in Cognition

    After much thought I decided that it was the best choice considering my ambition to adapt machines to humans (and not the contrary) and my will to teach.
