Louis Papillon entered in Ecole Centrale de Nantes, a French engineering school in 2014. He has a specialization in solid and numerical mechanics. He did an internship in the LMA at Marseille, in the modelling of behavior of elastomers. He also studied fluid mechanics and hydrodynamics, acquired knowledge in naval architecture, sea-keeping, running resistance, marine renewable energies, and did practical works in the towing tank of the LHEEA.
Since 2018 Louis stared a 6-month internship at the COER, in research in hydrodynamic control of primary capture system of a new-generation wave energy converter.
