Philippe Poncet studied applied and pure mathematics at University Joseph Fourier of Grenoble (France), and graduated his Master 2 of Applied Mathematics in 1997. After one year of military obligations (CPGE of French Air Force Academy), he performed his PhD on particle methods for 3D flows in domains with curved boundaries. He joined the Toulouse Mathematics Institute (UMR CNRS 5219) in 2002, which resulted in his accreditation to supervise research (HDR) in 2008. Since 2013, he is full professor at UPPA, and heads the team Numerical Methods and Complex Fluids at LMAP.

Research interests

Expert knowledge in vortex and particle methods for fluid dynamics. Specialist on numerical analysis, high performance computing, control and optimization (stochastic and gradient-based techniques).

My research interests are mainly:

  • Particle and vortex methods for fluid dynamics,
  • Wakes and drag control,
  • Numerical microfluidics in complex geometries,
  • Numerical methods for reactive porous media,
  • High Performance Computing (HPC),
  • Pore scale modeling in geo-sciences,
  • Bio-mechanics and modeling of cystic fibrosis,
  • Numerical methods for rheology,
  • Numerical analysis.
