Welcome On My Domain

Happy to meet you, I am Jonas, PhD and Engineer in Neuroergonomics and Aeronautic. I am currently working at FREQUENTIS, Vienna (Austria). We specialize in solutions for control rooms in many different environments. Here no kangaroos, but enough motivation for leaps toward a safer world.

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

About me

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

Neuroergonomics is a young field that aims to use latest neuroscience models to study ergonomics. Far from being another trend, crossing those fields 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 and processes in our daily life.

Being more environmentally friendly and offering higher safety are the two major goals that aeronautics has to tackle during the 21st century. I concentrate on the latter and its HMIs.

  • 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 knowledge, 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 Neuroergonomics

    After much thought I decided that it was the best choice considering my will to understand humans better in order to adapt machines to operators (and not the contrary).

  • Winter 2018

    Data Analyst at CNRS

    I discovered during my PhD that data analysis was something I enjoyed, particularly within public research environment.

  • 2019 - 2021

    Neuroergonomics specialist at APSYS

    To connect again with aeronautical aeronautical context, I joined APSYS in the young Human Factors team. There, I worked as the neuroergonomic specialist of a multidisciplinary team, allowing me to work on inspired projects while still learning from collegues.

  • 2021 - Now

    Solution Architect at FREQUENTIS

    For family reasons, I moved to Vienna (Austria). I (re)joined FREQUENTIS in the Tower Automation Offering team. Here, I discuss with clients during or after offer phase to answer as many requirements as possible by designing a robust, safe and understandable architecture.
