    Research topics:

    I have mainly two research topics:
    • Data assimilation for geophysical problems: I am currently working on a nudging based DA algorithm (see this page for more details on this algorithm).
    • Image processing by topological asymptotic expansion: the idea is to apply the topological derivative theory to the classical variational formulations of image restoration (see this page for more details and numerical results - this page is quite old, sorry, but send me an e-mail if you are interested in more recent stuff).
      Edge detection software and image registration software available on request.
    Other research topics:
    • Optimal control, variational methods
    • Coupling data and models
    • Inverse problems, numerical analysis
    • Image registration and identification of velocity fields from sequences of geophysical images (see this page for several numerical results)
    See my habilitation thesis for more details about my research.
