Stéphane Descombes

Stéphane Descombes received his Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics from Université Lyon 1, France, in 1995. From 1998 to 1999, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MIS) in Leipzig, Germany. From 1999 to 2007, he was Assistant Professor at the Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, France. Since 2007, he is Professor of applied mathematics at the Nice Sophia Antipolis University, member of Université Côte d’Azur. In 2009, he joined the INRIA Nachos team as a permanent member in Sophia Antipolis and since 2016 he is also the director of the Center of Modeling, Simulation and Interactions (MSI) of the Université Côte d’Azur.

His research interests include different aspects of numerical analysis and scientific computing, with a great interest in stiff problems in space and time. Currently his activities are concerned with the development of flexible and efficient numerical methodologies for the simulation of wave propagation, including the development of implicit-explicit time integration schemes with different space discretizations like for example discontinuous Galerkin methods.
