Current Position

I am a research fellow at INRIA Paris in the team MA

We are interested in physiological or physical modelling of the complex and multiscale phenomena via mathematical analysis of partial differential equations or the use of simulation methods from statistical physics, and in the development of effective and reliable numerical methods.

Past Position

From Oct 2015 to Oct 2017 I was a post doctoral researcher in applied mathematics at the faculty of mathematics in Vienna with  Christian Schmeiser. We were interested in modelling the morphology and mechanics of cells crawling, the motion of which being driven by cytoskeletal dynamics. I am a former member of the Project WWTF (Modeling of Polarization and Motility of Leukocytes in Three-Dimensional Environments). 

Past Position

From september 2012 to august 2015, I was a PhD student in applied mathematics at Institut de Mathématiques de  Toulouse (IMT)  under the supervision of Pierre Degond and Fanny Delebecque. We worked in collaboration with two biologists: Louis Casteilla and Anne Lorsignol from the STROMALAB. We were interested in the modelling of adipose tissue homeostasis and I was a member of the CNRS project PEPS-MATH (Modeling Adult Tissue Homeostasis) and the project was supported by the Region Midi Pyrenees under grant APRTCN 2013.

Research Interests

Mathematical modeling of complex systems coming from biology, microscopic models, derivation of macroscopic models, kinetic theory, Asymptotic study


Flash NEWS: 

  • The first session of the Open MAMBA Seminar (description here) will take place Monday 22 january, 1:30-3 pm at INRIA Paris. (Room ‘Jacques Louis Lions 2’ of building C, see how to come) We will have the pleasure to listen to Yi Yin and Jieling Zhao.
  • Together with P. Degond and S. Merino, we propose a M2 internship position at LJLL entitled 'Coarse graining of swimmers dynamics in a fluid filled with obstacles'  (more details here and here)
