I obtained a diploma in Civil Engineering in 2005 from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL). I am currently writing a PhD thesis at UCL, under the supervision of Professor Jean-François Remacle.

Mesh adaptivity, fluid-structure interaction
I'm currently developing MAdLib, a mesh adaptation library which transiently adapts a tetrahedral mesh by local modifications.
Here are some animations of adapting meshes:
In the framework of my PhD, I am also looking into the modeling of fluid-structure interaction problems. In particular I experiment partitioned methods for applications involving large structural deformations. Possible applications are the modeling of arterial flows or more generally the behavior of thin structures in a flow.
