The ICL-CNRS fellowship gave me the opportunity to make several long visits to Imperial College during the academic year 2021-2022. I appreciated a lot the scientific atmosphere of the Mathematics Department, especially in the research group around my host Michele Coti Zelati, with highly motivated young researchers. I could benefit from stimulating scientific discussions and research talks, at Imperial and in broader UK.

I have been able to realise part of the research project planned with Michele, at the crossroad between mixing phenomena and collective dynamics. Together with Helge Dietert, we have partially unraveled the mixing mechanisms behind the dynamics of active suspensions, and have seen emerged interesting mathematical features. There is still a lot to do in this direction, and I am very grateful to Imperial and to the CNRS for initiating this interesting research program !
