Scientific Community involvement

Implication in local and international scientific community

Chair of Educational Committee

ECMI has set up the ECMI Educational Committee with representatives from each participating university.

This committee meets twice a year and is in charge of all educational activities

Head of PDE Team @ LJK

The Partial Differential Equations team is part of the MAD department (Deterministic Models and Algorithms) and gathers researchers in the area of modeling, analysis and scientific computing in strong interaction with other disciplines.

Deputy Director of MaiMoSiNE

MaiMoSiNE is an university structure which provides an interface for industrial engineers and scientists to communicate their needs, objectives and challenges, to university researchers

Chair of Persyval-MFA

Based on high-level research laboratories present at Grenoble in Mathematics, Computer Science, Automatic Control, Signal Processing, and Hardware Architecture, Persyval-lab promotes a holistic approach for developing an ambitious scientific program focused on four research actions conducted by integrated multi-disciplinary small and effective teams.

The research action “Mathematics: from Fundamentals to Applications” (MFA) aims at better understanding and optimizing the dynamic behavior of complex computational-physical systems.

Head of M1 Master Program in Applied Mathematics in Grenoble

Currently, applied mathematics is an area that provides many job opportunities, in industry and in the academic world. There is a great demand for mathematical engineers on topics such as scientific computation, big data analysis, imaging and computer graphics, with applications in many fields such as physics, medicine, biology, engineering, finance, environmental sciences.
