About me

calanques I am a PhD student in Applied Mathematics at Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions (Sorbonne Université) in Paris, France. I am working on Quantum Control Theory in Inria team CAGE under the supervision of Profs. Ugo Boscain and Mario Sigalotti. The aim of my research field is to adapt tools from classical optimal control theory to quantum mechanics in order to provide faster, more accurate and more robust ways to control quantum systems. Applications include medical imaging, chemical reactions control, quantum sensing, quantum computing…
