has worked on the development of the Planck Sky Model, in particular a model of emission from the Cosmic Infrared Background. He graduated in January 2013 and after a postdoc at SISSA in Trieste working on Planck LFI data analysis and extragalactic point sources, he changed fields to work on machine learning as a postdoc at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
Matthieu Roman (from 2011 to 2014)

Mathieu Remazeilles (from 2009 to 2011)
has worked on component separation, in particular for the analysis of the data of the Planck mission. After a postdoc at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale in Orsay, he moved to Manchester and is working on foreground emission and component separation for Planck and for future polarization CMB observations.
Soumen Basak (from 2009 to 2011)
has worked on the analysis of WMAP data, and in particular polarised component separation for the measurement of CMB polarisation. He has also contributed on the development of the Pre-Launch Planck Sky Model. After a postdoc at CEA Saclay (IRFU/SAp), he moved in 2013 to SISSA in Trieste where he works on polarization data analysis for Planck.
Niraj Welikala (from 2012 to 2013)
has worked on the development of a model of extragalactic radio and infrared sources. He now is a postdoc at the University of Oxford.
Ata Karakci (from 2014 to 2016)
has worked on the analysis of CMB polarization observations and on the Planck sky model. He now is a postdoc at the University of Oslo.
The following former students did a part of their PhD research with me. They typically are foreign visiting PhD students, or students from another area of research (information processing).
Hichem Snoussi (from 2000 to 2003)
was a signal processing doctoral student, who worked with me on component separation for CMB observations. He now is a professor at the University of Technology of Troyes.
Svitlana Zinger (from 2001 to 2004)
was a PhD student from the field of information processing, working on the reconstruction of unproperly sampled CMB maps. She now is a Senior researcher in the Video Coding and Architectures research group in Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands).
Silvia Fernandez-Cerezo (from 2001 to 2005)
has been working on using the SMICA component separation tool for the analysis of Cosmosomas data. She has changed fields after her PhD to work on medical imaging and applications.
Marco Tucci (2005)
from the Instituto de Fisica de Cantabria (IFCA), has worked with me on the impact of foreground emission on our ability to measure the tensor-to scalar ratio of primordial perturbations from B-modes of CMB polarisation. After a postdoc at LAL in Orsay, he moved to the cosmology and astroparticle research group at the University of Geneva.
Frédéric Guilloux (from 2004 to 2008)
