Team

2018 team members; from left to right: Christopher Thiele, Bo Shen, Rami Masri, Jonas Actor, Beatrice Riviere, Lu Lin, Bryan Doyle, Chen Liu. Not present: Loic Cappanera and Maurice Fabien

The COMP-M team is made of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students from the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics:

Beatrice Riviere

Noah G. Harding chair and professor
Dr. Riviere received her Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of more than sixty scientific publications in numerical analysis and scientific computing.  Her book on the theory and implementation of discontinuous Galerkin methods is highly cited. Dr. Riviere has worked extensively of the derivation of numerical methods applied to problems in porous media and in fluid mechanics. Her current research deals with the development of high-order methods in time and in space for multiphase multicomponent flows in heterogeneous media, as well as the modeling of intestinal edema. Dr. Riviere is a member of the editorial board of SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, Advances in Water Resources.

Matthias Heinkenschloss

Noah G. Harding chair and professor
Dr. Heinkenschloss received his Ph.D. in 1991 from the University of Trier. His primary research interests are the development and analysis of optimization methods for the solution of optimal control, optimal design, and parameter identification problems governed by partial differential equations (PDEs). In these problems, one tries to compute inputs of a given system modeled by PDEs so that the corresponding outputs, the solution of the PDE, have certain desirable features.

Loic Cappanera

Postdoctoral research associate
Dr. Cappanera received his Ph.D. in Fluid Mechanics from Paris-Sud University in 2015 and his aggregation from ENS Cachan in 2011. His research interests are scientific computing, entropy viscosity stabilization for CFD, magnetohydrodynamics, and porous media.
