Mr. Etienne Memin | Systemes Dynamiques  | Best Researcher Award

PHD at Rennes I University

👨‍🏫 🌊  Since 2022, I’ve proudly led the interdisciplinary ODYSSEY research group, a collaborative effort affiliated with Inria, Ifremer, Institut Mines-Télécom Atlantique, the University of Western Brittany Brest, and the University of Rennes. Spanning locations in Brest and Rennes, our team operates within three CNRS laboratories, focusing on Mathematics (IRMAR/INSMI), Earth Sciences and Astronomy (LOPS/INSU), and Computer Science (Lab-STICC/INSSII). Comprising 21 permanent Researchers, 1 Research Engineer, 23 Ph.D. students, and 6 post-doctoral fellows, our group converges expertise in Physical Oceanography, Computational Science, Data Analysis, and Applied Mathematics. Our research endeavors aim to merge data-driven ocean models, physics-based approaches, and observational data, with a primary focus on ocean dynamics modeling and analysis. With strong international partnerships and expertise in stochastic modeling, machine learning, and data assimilation, our group continues to forge new paths in understanding and modeling ocean dynamics. 🌍🔍

🔍 Research Focus 🌐

Within geophysical fluid dynamics and stochastic modeling, the collaborative research led by E. Mémin delves into diverse aspects. Their investigations span understanding turbulent flows (like channel flow and boundary layers) using stochastic models and data assimilation techniques. These endeavors explore various phenomena, such as surface waves, high-rise wind flow reconstruction, and uncertain environmental conditions affecting fluid dynamics. Methodologically, the research aims to develop advanced algorithms and mathematical frameworks for diagnosing, analyzing, and simulating complex geophysical systems. The ultimate goal lies in enhancing our comprehension of fluid behavior and its role in shaping environmental patterns through probabilistic and variational data-driven methodologies. 🌊✨
