2013: Seminar in classes préparatoires.
2013: Large audience conference in a UK
As I was fellow of the Institute of Advanced Studies of Warwick university (UK), at the mathematic department, I was asked to make a public lecture for high-school students at the grammar school of Stratfort-upon-Avon, the former school of Shakespeare. Slides.
Can we predict cyclones by rolling dices ?
December 2012: Invited seminar at AGU meeting, San Francisco.The American Geophysical Union meeting gathers the world specialists of geosciences. I gave an invited seminar on "atmosphere jet dynamics and statistical physics".
October 2012: Large audience seminar on climate, in Lyon: “Changements de climat : changements de société ?”, organisée par Pauline Lachapelle dans le cadre des recontres "Et si on en parlait"

September 2012: Book of Cedric Villani.
Cedric refers in his book to some relations
between his work and ours (please do not
laugh when you will see my picture in his book).
September 2012: Lectures of Peyresq's school published.
During four years, I was organizing a school on nonlinear dynamics, Aux Rencontres de Peyresq, in the village of Peyresq. Together with J.A. Sepulchre and B. Audoly, we have edited a book: Peyresq lectures on non-linear dynamics, with some of the main lectures. It has just been published.
2012: Organization of a conference
on rare events in Lyon.
May 2012: Antoine at CNRS.Antoine Venaille, my first PhD student, has been hired at CNRS after a two-year post-doc in Princeton in the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics In relation with my project to develop tools for the theory and computation of extreme events in turbulent flows with application to climate, I have initiated a conference that gathered the world specialist of rare event computation in natural sciences:
