Curriculum vitae

PhD thesis

I have done my PhD in Toulouse (France) at the IMT (Institut de Mathematiques de Toulouse) under the direction of Pierre Degond and Guy Theraulaz. My thesis was an interdisciplinary project between two teams: MIP (Mathematics for Industry and Physics) and CRCA (Research Center of Animal Cognition).
