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, involving hydrodynamic instabilities. Ranked first three times in 2002 for assistant professorship (Univ. Strasbourg, UPMC and INSA Toulouse), he joined the Toulouse Mathematics Institute (UMR CNRS 5219). This resulted in his accreditation to supervise research (HDR) in 2008. Since 2013, he is full professor at UPPA, and has been heading the team Numerical Methods for Complex Fluids at LMAP (UMR CNRS 5142) until 2018. Since this date, he is vice-president of UPPA in charge of digital environment.
