Grégoire Ferré was awarded the PhD prize from the doctoral school MSTIC of University Paris East

Grégoire Ferré was a PhD student at CERMICS from October 2016 to September 2019, and defended his PhD in November 2019. He worked on large deviation theory and its application in statistical physics, both from theoretical and numerical viewpoints. He now is a research associate at Capital Fund Management.

Nicolas Pignet was awarded the Paul Caseau PhD prize in numerical simulation and is one of the three nominees of the AMIES PhD prize

Nicolas Pignet was a PhD student at CERMICS from November 2016 to October 2019, supported by a CIFRE PhD Fellowship with EDF R&D. He defended his PhD in October 2019 on hybrid high-order methods for nonlinear solid mechanics. Nicolas Pignet devised and analyzed new discretization schemes, and applied them to hyperelasticity, plasticity, and contact/friction problems. He implemented his work in… Read more »

Amaury Hayat, permanent researcher at CERMICS, received the EECI PhD Award 2019. This prize of the European Embedded Control Institute recognizes since 2007 the best PhD work in Europe in the domain of control theory for complex systems. Amaury Hayat was distinguished for his work on the stabilization of partial differential equations modeling of hyperbolic type, such as trafic flow… Read more »

Eric Cancès was awarded an ERC synergy grant (2019-2026)

Molecular simulation is one of the most dynamic areas of scientific computing. Its field of application is very broad, ranging from theoretical chemistry and drug design to materials science and nanotechnology. Its importance in modern science has been acknowledged by two Nobel Prizes (Kohn & Pople in 1998; Karplus, Levitt & Warshel in 2013). It is also a gold mine… Read more »
