Present affiliation: permanent research and teaching position at University of Geneva, Section of mathematics.

I am a senior research associate at University of Geneva, Section of Mathematics.

Prior to joining the University of Geneva in September 2013, I was post-doc at EPFL (2009-2011) and agrégé-préparateur at ENS Rennes (2011-2013). I received my PhD in Mathematics in 2008 at University of Rennes 1 (INRIA Rennes) and University of Geneva (double doctorate program), and I obtained my Research Habilitation in 2013 at ENS Rennes (ex: ENS Cachan Bretagne).
In 2013, I received the Young Researcher First Prize 2013 (Mathematics) of the Region Bretagne (France).

I am a member of SMAI (France) and the Swiss mathematical society.
I am a member of the CAMAS Consulting platform (Section of Mathematics).

Former affiliations: Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Université de Rennes 1 (IRMAR), INRIA Rennes (IPSO), Ecole Normale Supérieure de Rennes.

We organize the Stepping Stone Symposium on Theoretical and Numerical Analysis of PDEs, Geneva, 29-30-31 August 2017.
We recently organized the Workshop of Multiscale methods for stochastic dynamics, Geneva, 1 Jan.-2 Feb. 2017 (see the videos).

Research interests: Numerical analysis of differential equations.

  • Geometric numerical integration and related algebraic structures (ODEs),
  • Numerical homogenization methods for multiscale PDEs,
  • Numerical methods for stochastic (partial) differential equations (SDEs and SPDEs).

Current PhD student: Ibrahim Almuslimani (Since Sept. 2016).
Current Master students: Adrien Laurent (ENS Rennes, PhD starting in Sept. 2017), Guillaume Bertoli (UNIGE, PhD starting in Sept. 2017, jointly with Martin Gander).
