I am a CNRS researcher (chargé de recherche) in the POEMS team (CNRS-ENSTA-INRIA, UMR 7231) at ENSTA-ParisTech (Palaiseau, France). Before, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium), Rice University (Houston, USA) and VirginiaTech (Blacksburg, USA), where I worked with Jean-Francois Remacle and Tim Warburton. I obtained my PhD at the Université de Liège in 2013, under the supervision of Christophe Geuzaine and Eric Delhez.

Research interests:

  • Numerical simulation of wave propagation (acoustic, electromagnetic and elastic waves)
  • Absorbing boundary conditions and perfectly matched layers
  • High-order methods and discontinuous finite element methods
  • High performance scientific computing and modern architectures
