I am a doctoral student in applied mathematics, under the supervisation of Stéphane Labbé, in the PDE research team of the Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann.
In 2012, a collaboration between TOTAL E&P and the Université Grenoble Alpes (with Stéphane Labbé and Jérome Weiss) has been launched on the study of sea ice mechanics. They developped a granular model for sea ice modelisation, a model that was the topic of Matthias Rabatel's Thesis. The goal of my phd is to add fracture mechanics to this model. Therefore, I focus on topics such as linear elasticity, fracture mechanics, variationnal calculus, Gamma-convergence, and shape optimization.
