This is what I do.

About me

I’m a PhD student in Mathematics and Computer Science at Inria Grenoble. My work within the Bipop research team focuses on the numerical mechanics of thin elastic structures in contact. I also teach several applied math courses at ENSIMAG in the Grenoble Institute of Technology.
