Hi !

I am Arthur, a PhD student in the Condensed Matter Theory group of the LOMA in Bordeaux. My thesis supervisors are David Dean and Thomas Guérin. I am working on problems of dispersion in heterogeneous media such as microchannels or crowded environments. For such systems, a stochatic approach is used in order to derive analytical solutions, that are supported with numerical simulations.
