### 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,
