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

I am a senior lecturer (Maître d'enseignement et de recherche) at University of Geneva, Section of Mathematics.

Before joining the University of Geneva in 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).

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

We organize the numerical analysis seminar together with Martin Gander and Bart Vandereycken.
I am a member of the Swiss mathematical society, Swiccomas, and SMAI (France).
I am a member of the CAMAS Consulting platform (Section of Mathematics, University of Geneva).
I am a member of the advising committee for studies in Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Numerical Sciences (Bachelor and Master).

Since Nov. 2019, I am a member of the editorial board of AIMS Applied Mathematics books.
We organize (with Georg Gottwald) the Workshop Numerical methods for complex high-dimensional systems, University of Sydney, new date in 2024 to be confirmed.

Past events.
We organized the Stepping Stone Symposium on Theoretical and Numerical Analysis of PDEs, University of Geneva, 29-30-31 August 2017.
We organized the Workshop of Multiscale methods for stochastic dynamics, University of Geneva, 1 Jan.-2 Feb. 2017 (see the videos).
We organized the Workshop on Multiscale methods for deterministic and stochastic dynamics, University of Geneva, 29-30 Jan. 2020 (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 research group.
