Paola GOATIN's teaching activity

Home |

During seven years I have been Assistant Professor (Maïtre de Conférences) at ISITV (the Engineering School in Toulon), where I taught courses of Numerical Analysis, Finite Elements, Advanced Numerical Analysis, Hyperbolic Problems, Numerical Schemes for Hyperbolic Equations.

Since 2010, besides my research activity at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, I teach at Polytech Nice - Sophia:
