Floriane Gidel

Dr. in Applied Mathematics & Numerical Methods

I studied mathematical engineering at INSA Toulouse (France) and DTU (Denmark), with a specialisation in mathematics and numerical modelling. In 2018, I obtained a PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Leeds, under the supervision of Prof. Onno Bokhove and Prof. Mark Kelmanson. This PhD project, called SURFsUp, was achieved in collaboration with the Maritime Research Institute of Netherlands (MARIN), and funded by the Marie Sklodowska Curie actions (EU EID). Since October 2018, I work with Dr. Clair Poignard in the Inria team MONC to model the effect of electroporation-based therapies on tumours. This work, in collaboration with the UCSB (Santa Barbara, USA), is funded by Inria@SiliconValley. Find more about my current and past projects here.
