Thibault Liard

Welcome to my webpage



I am "maître de conférence" (associate professor) at Limoges University (France).

I defended my PhD, directed by Alain Haraux and Yannick Privat on November 4 th 2016 , which was entitled "Observation and control for some conservative systems."


My phd work focused on the internal controllability and its cost for some linear partial differential equations. I am interested to work on controllability and optimization for weak solutions of hyperbolic system of balance laws.


My scientific interests are control theory, calculus of variations, optimal control problem, identification problems, systems of conservation laws, coupled PDE/ODE, non-classical shocks, wave front tracking methods.
