4, place Jussieu, Couloir 16-26, 3e étage

F75252 Paris Cedex 05

Current Position

I am a research fellow at INRIA Paris in the team MAMBA.

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.

Upcoming events

  • Nov 12-17, 2018 Workshop 'Modelisation mathematique de la croissance et la reparation tissulaire', Treilles, France
  • Nov 25-30, 2018 BIRS-CMO Workshop 'Mathematical challenges in the Analysis of Continuum models for cancer growth', Oaxaca, Mexico
  • Jan 11, 2019 Math-Bio seminar P13, Paris

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).

Recent events

  • July 23-30, 2018 ECMTB Conference, mini-symposium 'Exploring the regeneration processes through mathematical modelling', Lisbon, Portugal
  • Sep 17-20, 2018 UMI-SMAI workshop, Wroclaw, Poland
  • Oct 16-18, 2018 PSU-P6 workshop 'Mathematics of living matter', Penn State, US

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.
