Since October 2015, I am permanent researcher in the team McTAO at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. I am also member of Laboratory J. A. Dieudonné.
From October 2014 to September 2015, I hold a “Jacques Hadamard”
postdoctoral research position at Mathematics laboratory (UMA) of Ecole nationale
supérieure des techniques avancées (ENSTA–Paristech), France where I worked with Frédéric Jean on geometric control theory.
From October 2013 to September 2014, I was postdoc at UMPA, ENS de Lyon in the group of Vincent Calvez where I worked on cell growth modeling and analysis.
My research lies in the following areas of
mathematics: control theory, theory of PDEs and numerical analysis.
In particular, I am interested in
Geometric control theory
Optimal control
Mathematical modeling
Fluid-structure interaction
My research is applied in biology and engineering, in particular
to the
following areas:
Micro-swimming: modeling and control
Conception of swimming micro-robots
Cell growth modeling and analysis
