Kinetic theory applied to the study of emergent phenomena in biology and social sciences using partial differential equations, probability and numerical analysis.
I am currently a Research Associate at Imperial College London. I work in Pierre Degond‘s project: Macroscopic dynamics and bifurcations of active particle systems.
In April 2015 I concluded the PhD at the Cambridge Centre for a Analysis, Centre for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge.
