Bochra Mejri

Welcome to my web page !

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratoire Jean-Alexandre Dieudonné (LJAD, Nice, France) under the supervision of Olivier Pantz. I am also a member of the DEFIDEF project and of the ANR research project FAULTS R GEMS. We are working on the determination of the elastic properties around seismic faults integrating defaults.

Formerly, I was an assistant professor at the National School of Science and Advanced Technology (ENSTAB, Borj Cedria, Tunisia).

Before, I was a Ph.D. student at the Laboratoire de Modélisation Mathématique et Numérique dans les Sciences de l'Ingénieur (LAMSIN, Tunis, Tunisia) under the joint supervision of Amel Ben Abda and Cédric Bellis from the Laboratoire de Mécanique et d'Acoustique (LMA, Marseille, France). I worked on the theoretical and numerical aspects of inverse problems for the detection of geometric defects in linear elasticity (Ph.D thesis, slides).
