Post-doctoral Fellow


I am research engineer at ICube, working within the Mimesis team at Inria. In the context of real-time simulation for pre-operative guidance, I am focusing on questions related to stochastic filtering, parameter estimation and system observability.

My past research lies in the area of Complex Material Systems. My PhD (2009-2012), at the theory and simulation group of the Charles Sadron Institute in Strasbourg focused on spontaneous formation of structures and universal scaling behaviors in polymer and fiber systems. As a post-doctoral fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science (2013-2015), I participated in a science-educational project targeting the fundamentals of Statistical Physics.


My research interests include physics-based simulation,  stochastic filtering, statistical physics of complex systems and multi-agent modeling.
