## Research projects

I am PI for the ANR SINEQ (2022-2025). The aim of this project is to provide new tools for the mathematical and numerical analysis of nonequilibrium stochastic dynamics. The techniques employed lie at the interface of various subfields of mathematics, ranging from probability theory and the study of stochastic processes to functional analysis and the theory of partial differential equations; with an emphasis on the numerical analysis of Monte Carlo methods and time discretization of stochastic differential equations.

I was PI for the ANR COSMOS (2014-2019). This project aimed at developing numerical techniques dedicated to the sampling of high-dimensional probability measure describing a system of interest. There were two application fields of interest: computational statistical physics (a field also known as molecular simulation), and computational statistics.
