Researchers

Research at CYENS stems from three Research Pillars: Visual Sciences, Human Factors and Design, Communications and Artificial Intelligence.

Branching out of the three Research Pillars, are the sixteen Multidisciplinary Research Groups (MRGs). Each MRG is comprised by an MRG leader and associate researchers.


Currently at CYENS, we have 17 active Multidisciplinary Research groups.
