Researcher in the Team Calisto at Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée (France), I am currently holding a Starting Research Position.
I am interested in developing Lagrangian stochastic models to simulate discrete particle dynamics in wall-bounded turbulent flows, with specific emphasis on particle deposition, resuspension and agglomeration phenomena. My research is thus at the crossroad between several physical domains (including fluid dynamics, multiphase flows, interface chemistry & surface science) and various issues of numerical analysis (stochastic models, optimisation and numerical implementations).
Currently, my research activities address challenges in mathematics and physics, with a view toward engineering applications. My research thus benefits from leading-edge research in stochastic models pursued in the team Calisto, which is a key aspect in my aspirations to develop new state-of-the-art models and to apply them in new applications.
Inertial particles, non-spherical particles, near-wall turbulent transport, preferential concentration.
Particle collision, particle adhesion, aggregate morphology, particle growth.
Near-wall turbulent transport, particle-surface interactions, surface roughness, deposit morphology.
Near-wall particle motion (sliding / rolling / lift), particle-surface adhesion, surface roughness, avalanche effects.
I am currently active in several collaborative projects, most of them in collaboration with members of Team Calisto. Each project is concerned with physical/theoretical aspects and numerical methods where collaboration with members of the team is essential. My current research involves the following topics:
Collaborative work with M. Bossy from Team Calisto to develop a stochastic Lagrange-Lagrange model for the fluid & particle phase in the SDM Code.
Collaborative project (POPART) between EDF R&D and Team Calisto (M. Bossy, J. Bec, S. Allende, L. Campana) to develop a stochastic model for the orientation of ellipsoids.
Collaborative work with G. Lécrivain from HZDR providing direct experimental evidence of collision-induced resuspension and developing corresponding models.
Collaborative work with M. Ferrand (CEREA) and J.P. Minier (EDF R&D) to improve Langevin models and to develop unified wall function boundary conditions.
Collaborative work with CORIA (J. Yon, J. Moran) to simulate maturity effects on the aggregation of soot particles.
Uncertainty quantification to analyse the results of numerical simulations on droplet dispersion in the air (Inria’s Mission Covid) or turbulent dispersion (VIMMP project)
