Mathias Malandain

I am an R&D engineer at Inria Rennes, affiliated to the SED (Experimentation and Development Service).

Research interests/field of activity

My work focuses on the design and development of efficient and robust software for the modeling and simulation of complex multi- and cyber-physical systems, with applications to structural health monitoring.

Short Bio

I obtained my engineering degree from the INSA (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées) Rouen in 2007, specializing in applied mathematics.

I spent three years as a PhD student at CORIA (Complexe de Recherche Interprofessionnel en Aérothermochimie), working on efficient solvers for the Pressure poisson equation for incompressible fluid flows. I received my PhD degree from Université de Rouen in 2013.

After getting my Agrégation in mathematics and spending a year as a teacher for the French National Education, I joined Inria Rennes in 2018 as an expert R&D engineer in the Hycomes team, specializing in the design of an efficient compiler for hybrid (or multimode) DAE models.

Since 2022, I am working in both the I4S and Hycomes teams on the joint use of hybrid DAE models and PDE-based models for the structural health monitoring of critical systems and structures.
