Research Overview

Mathematical modelling of emergent phenomena

An important part of my work is devoted to multi-scale models of collective dynamics and in particular on the problem of emergence of self-organisation under various geometrical constraints. I work on both PDE models (with a special focus on kinetic PDEs) and stochastic models and, often, a combination of both. I have a special interest for the study of systems of interacting particles, their scaling limits and their applications from a biological perspective.
More generally, I am interested in mathematical models of self-organisation for life sciences, their rigorous analysis and numerical simulation.


Antoine Diez obtained his PhD in Mathematics from Imperial College London (2022). Before that, he was a student at the École Normale Supérieure de Rennes (France) from which he graduated with a BSc in Mathematics, a BSc in Physics and where he obtained the French Agrégation. He earned a MSc in Mathematics from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France) (2018). He was appointed as program-specific researcher at ASHBi in May 2022.
