Portrait de Philippe Pierre

Program Supervisor

Master in Electrification and Powertrain
Associate Professor

Philippe Pierre joined IFP School in 2006 as an Assistant Professor. Until 2009, he was in charge of the Research Master's program in Land Powertrain in collaboration with the University of Paris 6.

In collaboration with the ENS of Saclay, he contributed to the creation of the Research Master's program in Electrification and Powertrain in 2009. He is a coordinator of different course modules at the Powertrains and Sustainable Mobility Center.

His career began at IFP Energies nouvelles in 1987 in the Energy Applications Techniques Division, where he was in charge of fuel studies and the development of exhaust gas post treatment systems. He was involved in developing methodology for optical measurements of the ignition delay within the "Groupement Scientifique Moteur" (GSM).

From 1997 to 2006, he took part in several studies for the development of new stratified combustion and auto-ignition combustion for Spark Ignition Engines. He contributed to the industrial development of combustion chambers and to the development of post-treatment systems (Particulate Filters, DeNOx).

He is also involved in the development of advanced studies on the elaboration of new innovative methodologies within the GSM (measuring unburned hydrocarbon emissions in transient state in a single cylinder research engine). Within the GSM, he develops new advanced tools which are used to better understand physical phenomenon in combustion analysis (endoscopic visualisations, instantaneous local measurements, development of post-processing signal tools).

Philippe Pierre graduated from the Paris Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in 1995 with an Engineering Degree, majoring in Engines, and then from IFP School in 1997 with a Master's Degree in Engines.
