Overview of research activities

I am essentially interested in the numerical simulation of the propagation of waves and I contribute in particular to the construction of new absorbing conditions. I work on time-dependent and stationary equations and I mainly focus on systems which are approximated by finite-element methods. I maintain collaborations with the oil company TOTAL for the development of software packages for the seismic imaging.
