Céline Laplassotte

Céline Laplassotte was born in Wissembourg, France in 1989. In 2009, she entered at Télécom Physique Strasbourg, France. The year after, she pursued her study with the Master Imagerie Robotique et Ingénierie pour le Vivant (Imaging, Robotics and Engineering for Surgery) at the University of Strasbourg. Her interests lie in the field of nonlinear control, biomedical engineering and robotics. Thanks to the Atlantis program, Céline pursued a dual Master of Science degree between the University of Strasbourg and the Nonlinear Controls and Robotics group in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida, under the supervision of Dr. Warren E. Dixon. During her laboratory time, she had the opportunity to work on robotic needle insertion.
