(Computer engineer, École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique pour l'Industrie et l'Entreprise (ENSIIE), 1983. DEA in Artificial Intelligence, Pierre and Marie Curie University, 1984. PhD in computer science, Telecom ParisTech, 1986)
Brigitte Jaumard joined CRIM in 2019 as Chief Scientist.  
Brigitte Jaumard's interest in taking up the challenge of solving very large practical problems in optimization began with the creation of the DIESE Junior-Enterprise (Dynamique Informatique Étudiante au Service de votre Entreprise) of the ENSIIE, which she chaired for 2 years. She then went on to work as a research engineer at the CNET - Centre National d'Études des Télécommunciations (France Telecom R&D).  She later became a researcher at RUTCOR (Rutgers Center for Operations Research) and CAIP (Center for Advanced Information Processing) in New Jersey, USA, before being appointed as a visiting professor in the Finance & Operations Research Department at Princeton University.
Brigitte Jaumard began her research career in Québec at École Polytechnique de Montréal (Department of Applied Mathematics, then Computer Engineering and Software Engineering). After 5 years at the Université de Montréal, she is now working in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Concordia University while serving as CRIM's Chief Scientist. She recently joined Ericsson's Advisory Board for GAIA North America.
Brigitte Jaumard has extensive research experience in both academic and industrial sectors in areas of large-scale optimization for highly combinatorial problems and its many applications in (tele)communications, transport and logistics. These projects led to several patents. Recently, she investigated machine learning models/algorithms for applications in medicine, smart cities and network communications.


Brigitte Jaumard has published more than 300 articles in international scientific journals and has given numerous conferences on operational research, artificial intelligence and telecommunications. Brigitte Jaumard has sat on many evaluation committees, particularly that of the Board of Governors of the Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (NATEQ) from 2001 to 2008. She represented Concordia University on the CREPUQ University Program Evaluation Commission (CEP) from 2006 to 2018.
