  • Biography

    Vincent Augusto is a professor and a permanent faculty member of Mines Saint-Étienne, Center for Biomedical and Healthcare Engineering. His areas of research are performance evaluation, engineering of healthcare systems (industrial engineering, simulation), optimization and management of healthcare systems (operational research), health data and medical decision aid (process mining, machine learning). He defended his thesis in 2008 related to the modeling, analysis and control of flows in healthcare systems using UML and Petri nets (Industrial Engineering). He defended his “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in 2016 on the topic of Health Territories Engineering. He was a visiting professor at CIRRELT (Interuniversity research center on business networks, logistics and transport), Laval University, Québec, Canada in 2009 and 2015. He is coresponsible of the living lab MedTechLab, where the approach design, experiments and innovation is combined with healthcare engineering. He is director of the Center for Biomedical and Healthcare Engineering of Mines Saint-Étienne since January 2020 (70 people).
