Thibaut Metivet

Post-doctoral researcher at the University of Strasbourg since July 2017.


I work on the mathematical modelling of biological flows, such as the rheology of flowing red blood cells and the adhesion and arrest of tumor cells in complex geometries. I also develop numerical tools to tackle the high-performance numerical simulations requested in this kind of problems.

As such, I am involved in the Vivabrain ANR and the Hemotum++ projects. These projects provide great frameworks to develop new numerical approaches designed for the complexity of biofluids, and validate these methods with various data from both in vitro and in vivo experiments lead by biologists I closely collaborate with.
