I am a researcher within the team “Modeling, Analysis and Simulation” of CERMICS at École des Ponts ParisTech.


I defended my PhD thesis on 11st February 2011 (manuscript). Title: Homogénéisation de modèles cinétiques dans des espaces de phase étendus. (Homogeneization of kinetic models in extended phase spaces) PhD supervisors: Claude Bardos and François Golse.

Research interests: Partial Differential Equations,


Teaching: tutoring in functional analysis at École des Ponts ParisTech and in algebra and statistics at École nationale supérieure des sciences géographiques.
