Philippe Rauffet is an associate professor at Université Bretagne Sud (Lorient, France) since 2012.
He is the leader of FHOOX team (Human and Organizational Factors, Automatics and compleX systems) at Lab-STICC UMR CNRS 6285 since 2020. In 2021, he is invited researcher for one sabbatical year at University of Adelaide.
He received his Ph.D. degree in 2010 from Ecole Centrale Nantes at IRCCyN laboratory, and his HDR (accreditation to direct research) from University of South Brittany (UBS) on the topic of Human-Autonomy Teaming.
His main interests focus on the modelling and the evaluation of operator cognitive states (e.g. mental workload, cognitive control, stress), as well as the optimization of human-machine cooperation (with dynamic function allocation, as well as adaptive and transparent dialogue between humans and autonomous systems). He studies these research questions with a multidisciplinary approach, combining automatics, human-factors engineering, and physiological signals processing and classification.
He has been working on several national and industrial projects, with both civilian and defence applications, in the domains of transportation systems (autonomous car, submarine, surface vessel, aircraft) and industry 4.0 (manufacturing supervision and predictive maintenance). He especially carried out some studies with Airbus, Thales, Renault, Dassault Aviation, Valeo, AXA, Naval Group, DGA, and French Merchant Navy.
