Inria Research Team MONC
Associate Team Num4SEP

Welcome to my webpage!

I am a research scientist at Inria Bordeaux-Sud Ouest, vice-leader of the research team MONC. Since 2017, I am leading the Inria associate team Num4SEP, which gathers F.Gibou's research group at UCSB and the team MONC.

Research Profile

My research first dealt with asymptotic analysis of singular or asymptotically singular domains for electromagnetism. Since 2008, fascinated by the mathematics applied to biology and medicine, I started to work on the mathematical modeling of electroporation at Inria Bordeaux. This subject with a high potential impact on cancer treatments combines electric field and biological tissue modeling. I am also involved in cell migration and more generally cancer growth modeling.

My work mainly lies in the field of applied and computational mathematics, with effective applications in biophysics and medicine.
