Agustín G. Yabo

Research scientist at INRAE


I am a permanent researcher at INRAE (France) working on control theory and applications to life sciences. I resort to theoretical and numerical optimal control approaches to predict biological phenomena—such as regulatory mechanisms in bacterial cells—and to develop synthetic control strategies for industrial and biotechnological applications.

I obtained my Automation and Control Systems Engineering degree at the National University of Quilmes (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 2015. In 2017, I moved to France where I obtained my Master’s degree in Systems, Control & IT specialized in Control and Systems Theory at the Université Grenoble Alpes (Grenoble, France). By the end of 2021, I obtained my Ph.D. in Automation, Signal and Image Processing at Inria center at Université Côte d’Azur (Nice, France), focused on optimal resource allocation in bacterial growth. In 2022, I started working as a postdoctoral researcher at INRAE Occitanie-Montpellier (Montpellier, France) where, a year after, I obtained a permanent research position in the MISTEA unit of the MathNum division.
