Cyril Botteron received his Electronics and Electrotechnics Engineering degree in 1991 from the University of Applied Sciences (EICN ETS) in Le Locle, Switzerland, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with specialization in Wireless Communications in 2003 from the University of Calgary, Canada. During his Ph.D., he was the recipient of a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada postgraduate scholarship, and an Alberta Informatics Circle of Research Excellence graduate fellowship.
From 1991 to 2000, he worked as electronics and software R&D engineer and project leader for different companies in the USA, Switzerland, and Canada. In 2003, he was appointed as Maitre Assistant at Université de Neuchâtel, Switzerland, lecturing as well as creating and developing two research groups with activities related to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. In 2009, he joined Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, developing new teaching activities as well as leading, managing, and coaching the research and project activities of the Positioning, Navigation, Timing, Sensing and Communications (PNTSC) sub-group totaling 8-12 full-time researchers.
He is the author or co-author of 5 patents and over 100 publications in major journals and conferences. He served on the program committee or organization board of various international conferences or workshops. He is a senior member of the IEEE since 2006 and a ION professional member since 2003.
