Boris Nectoux

Welcome to my webpage.

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at Université Blaise Pascal under the supervision of Arnaud Guillin (funded by the ANR project EFI).

I am also a member of the ANR project QuAMProcs (quantitive analysis of metastable processes).


I did my PhD thesis under the supervison of Tony Lelièvre and Eric Cancès at Cermics (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech). I defended it on 20th November 2017. The manuscript is available here and the slides of the defense here.

Research interests:

    • Metastability in statistical physics
    • Exit event of the Langevin process in the small temperature regime
    • Quasi-stationary distributions
    • Semi-classical analysis, potential theory, and large deviations theory
    • Eyring-Kramers law
    • Spectral analysis
