About me

I am currently Assistant Professor (Maîtresse de conférence) at MAP5, Université Paris Cité. I am interested in different inverse problems from physics and biology, especially those involving wave propagation.

Here is a list of my current research interests:
    Inverse Problems
    Wave propagation
    Mathematical Modelling
    Stochastic methods

Before that, I completed my PhD on inverse problems and local resonances in irregular mechanical waveguides at ICJ, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, with Éric Bonnetier, Laurent Seppecher, and Grégory Vial.

Then, I did a one-year post-doc with Josselin Garnier at CMAP, Ecole Polytechnique, working on wave propagation in complex media and associated inverse problems.
