H. Ammari, E. Bonnetier, E. Bretin, E. Brusseau, J. Garnier, P. Millien, L. Petrusca, G. Vial.

PhD student

A. Niclas. She is defending on the 8th of July 2022.

Recent Updates

May 2022 I have participated to the 10th International Conference "Inverse problems: Modelling and simulations" in Malta.
July 2022 Our student Angele Niclas will defend her PhD thesis this summer on inverse problems in elastic waveguides using locally resonnant frequencies the 8th of July 2022.
2022 I coordinate the ANR-PRC projet REWARD. The aim of this project is to deepen and broaden the analysis of a recently introduced mathematical method to recover elastic properties of materials from internal displacement data. We also aim at pushing foraward its application to medical elastography. We passed phase 1.
2023 I will be on sabbatical (CRCT) during the first semester 2023 at INSA de Lyon to focus on the application of elastography on in-vivo data, in collaboration with Elie Bretin (ICJ) and Elisabeth Brusseau (CREATIS).
