Architecture - EZCT

The EZCT architecture agency was looking for a Mathematician for participating in the Pavillon Seroussi competition. I hence gave a hand on discrete differential geometry, and more precisely on the very nice paper Liu Y., Pottmann, H., Wallner, J., Yang Y., and Wang W.: Geometric Modeling with Conical Meshes and Developable Surfaces. ACM Trans. Graphics 25(3), 681-689, (2006), Proc. SIGGRAPH 2006.

This competition was led by a computationnel process in relation with experimental architecture such as introduced by the sculptor and architect André Bloc.

Administrative Activity

Bureau des doctorants de l'IMJ, Institut of Mathematics of Jussieu-PRG, France

From 2007 to 2009, I have been a Phd representative at the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu in charge of the daily life of the PhD students (offices, IT service, etc).

The daily (mathematical) life at the Institut according to the PhD students website, with informations on the first steps at the Institut, the submission of the thesis and other amenities.

IMS'06, Avignon, France

From 2003 to 2006, I participated to the organizing committee of the International Mathematica Symposium 06. This symposium took place for 1 week at the Palais des papes in Avignon France and gathered around 150 users of the computer algebra system Mathematica coming from various scientifical areas (physicist of the CERN, computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, architects,...).
I also gave a hand for the afternoon meeting on Teaching with Mathematica, organized by Jean-François Gouyet.

Support of INRIA, AMD and Apple.
Around 150 participants.
