Dr. Vincent Kerbaol (vincent.kerbaol (at) boost-technologies.com), CEO, was born in 1969. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne in 1992 with emphasis in image processing. After doing his civil service in Tromsoe, Norway, he worked as a PhD student on ocean SAR Images at the Oceanography from Space laboratory at IFREMER, Brest France. In 1997, he received the Ph.D. in signal/image processing and remote sensing from the University of Rennes 1, France. He stayed at IFREMER up to February 1999, as a post doc granted by CNES (French space agency), mainly working on altimetry. In March 1999, He joined the ENST Bretagne in the Départment Signal and Communications as an assistant professor. His works mainly include sea state retrieval, from SAR imagery and altimetry, radar technology and signal/image processing. He is now ruling the company since 2002.


Dr. Fabrice Collard (fabrice.collard (at) boost-technologies.com), was born in 1973. He graduated from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 1996, where he studied off-shore engineering. In 2000, he received the Ph.D. in oceanography and meteorology environment. His thesis was dedicated to the three dimensional aspect of wind-wave field. He spent two years working on HF radars as a post-doctoral research associate at RSMAS, Miami, USA. He is currently working on the validation of the synthetic aperture radar of ENVISAT.


Dr. Guillaume Hajduch (guillaume.hajduch (at) boost-technologies.com), was born in 1977. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (ENST Bretagne) in 2000 with emphasis in signal processing and digital communications. He worked as a PhD student on high resolution ship target ISAR imaging at Thales Airborne Systems and ENST Bretagne, Brest France. In 2003, he received the Ph.D. in signal/image processing and remote sensing from the University of Rennes 1, France. He spent one year mainly working on very high resolution SAR imaging at Thales Information Systems and Thales Airborne Systems, Brest France. His works mainly include radar technology, SAR processing, digital spectral analysis, signal/image processing. He joined BOOST Technologies in 2005.


Céline Danilo(celine.danilo (at) boost-technologies.com), (1979) graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées in 2004. She participated in Florida State University with the team of Prof. W. Dewar at the initialization of a coupled model between ocean and atmosphere as her summer internship in 2003. The year after, she collaborated with the SHOM (Hydrodynamic and Oceanic Services for french Marine) at the elaboration of a tidal model for Gabonese harbours: Port-Gentil and Libreville. She joined BOOST-Technologies as a Ph.D student to work on the current and the synthetic aperture radar.


Joseph Tenerelli (joseph.tenerelli (at) boost-technologies.com), born 1970, received a BS in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington in 1994. From 1999 to 2005 he was a Research Associate at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami, where he worked as part of a team to develop a coupled atmosphere-ocean-surface wave version of an atmospheric mesoscale model (MM5) with vortex-following mesh refinement suitable for simulating hurricanes. Since April 2005, he has worked as a research engineer part of a team developing an algorithm to infer ocean surface salinity concentration from satellite observations of the Earth's emission at L-band.


Alexis A. Mouche (alexis.mouche (at) boost-technologies.com) was born in 1979. He received a Master degree in Physics for remote sensing from the University of Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, in 2002. From 2002 to 2005, he worked as a Ph.D. student at CETP/IPSL/CNRS (National Research Center) and received a Ph.D. in physics with a focus on ocean remote sensing in 2005. Since January 2006, he has been working on approximate scattering wave theories from random ocean surface in the Spatial Oceanography group at IFREMER, Brest, France. This post-doctoral position was granted by CNES (French Space Agency). He joined BOOST Technologies in 2008.


Permanent development staff

Patrick Leildé (patrick.leilde (at) boost-technologies.com), was born in 1980. He has a technical degree (Diplôme Universitaire de Technologies GEII). He worked for one year at IFREMER in Oceanography from Space laboratory (DOPS/LOS) in software development for processing and co-location of satellite data. Then he developped tools for new generation in-situ marine measurements. Since 2002, he joined the BOOST Technologies company. He is currently involved in system administration and software development.


Romain de Joux (romain.dejoux (at) boost-technologies.com), born 1980, is graduated from the Ecole Supérieure d'Informatique et Application de Lorraine (ESIAL), with emphasis in software engineering. In 2004, he worked at IFREMER/CERSAT to conceive and implement an automatic processing chain for the MEDSPIRATION project (ESA). From 2005 to 2006, he worked at VIRTUALYS on web site developpement with coupling to data server for the IFREMER/CERSAT and the PREVIMER web sites. He shifted to BOOST Technologies as software developpment manager at the end of 2006.


Permanent administrative staff

Caroline SIMON (caroline.simon (at) boost-technologies.com), was born in 1970. She has a technical degree for International Trading. After 5 years in Switzerland, where she worked in an international trading compagny, she came back to France to organize conferences for the Brest Congress Center ( Le Quartz ). She became the Assistant of Direction of BOOST Technologies in 2005.
