Thibault Liard

Welcome to my webpage





I am currently post-doctoral researcher at LS2N (Nantes, France), under the supervision of Swann Marx.

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. During my postdoctoral positions, I studied the impact of an autonomous vehicle on vehicular traffic leading to work on coupled PDE/ODE where the PDE is an equation of conservation laws and the ODE models the trajectory of the autonomous vehicle.

I am interested to work on controllability and stabilisation for weak solutions (not necessarily entropy-weak solutions) of conservation laws.

My scientific interests are Control theory, Calculus of variations, Inverse problems, Systems of conservation laws, Coupled PDE/ODE, non-classical shocks, Wave front tracking methods,
