I am a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics under the supervision of Pierre Degond and Sara Merino-Aceituno. My general research interests are in optimization, mathematical modelling, complex systems and multi-scaling problems. My current work includes the development of a framework for modelling the mechanical interactions of a packed cell tissue at the microscopic level. This modelling work is made in collaboration with a team of biologists in Toulouse. To visit my personal website, please click here
