Mobility project

Modelling and simulation of the cyanobacterial population of the Lake Taihu to forecast the risk of toxic bloom pollution and secure the drinking water supply

Due to the fast industrialization and urbanization of China, the quality of the water of the Lake Taihu (a large shallow lake of China) is decreasing tragically, leading to serious eutrophication problems. In particular, toxic cyanobacterial blooms occur more and more often. The objective of my project is the modeling and the simulation of the population dynamics of cyanobacteria in the lake. I will develop a model describing the lake ecosystem and couple it with a hydrodynamic model of the eutrophic Lake Taihu, which is based the open-source code FVCOM (Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model).

Biography & research interests

During two years, I studied applied mathematics (bachelor and master degrees) at the University of Toulouse III (Toulouse, France). I then graduated in Engineering Sciences from the “National Higher School of Aeronautics and Space” (SUPAERO, Toulouse, France) in 2006. From 2006 to 2009, I was a Ph.D. student at the Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS, Toulouse, France), under the supervision of Gérard Montseny. I received a Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control from the University of Toulouse III in 2009. I then spent one year as a professor assistant in applied mathematics (A.T.E.R.) at the “French engineering school in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Computer Science, Hydraulics and Telecommunications” (ENSEEIHT, Toulouse, France). From September 2010 to august 2011, I had a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Systems Engineering and Applied Mechanics (CESAME, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), under the supervision of Denis Dochain. Since September 2011, I am a permanent junior researcher at the French National Institute of Research in Agriculture (INRA) in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Until October 2014, I was also a member of the INRA/INRIA project-team MODEMIC (Modelling and optimisation of the dynamics of ecosystems with micro-organisms). My research interests are the modelling, the simulation and the mathematical study of microbial ecosystems; the control of bioprocesses; and the study of distributed delay systems, that is dynamical systems of infinite dimension, involving some convolution operators with non-rational transfer functions.
