Postdoctoral fellow at the TU Vienna


src Currently, I am a postdoc at the TU Vienna, where I'm working with Christian Schmeiser on modelling and doing the mathematical analysis for cell membrane, in particular for the lamellipodium. I am also interested in analysis of non linear PDEs, of drift-diffusion type in particular, just like the Keller and Segel model for chemotaxis. This also leads me to study some related functional inequalities.

PhD thesis

Asymptotic study of non linear diffusion type PDEs and related functional inequalities (TEL)

Supervisor: Jean Dolbeault. Written within Ceremade, and defended on June 23, 2014.


  • Modelling in cell biology
  • Asymptotic behaviour for non linear diffusion
  • Mean-field models - Keller-Segel-type systems
  • Sharp functional inequalities
  • Numerical analysis
