Ahmed Shokry Abdelaleem, a research engineer at the Centre for Applied Mathematics at Ecole Polytechnique, won the 2022 Excellence Award in Computer Aided Process Engineering, granted by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering.
Pascal Chabert, CNRS research director at the Plasma Physics Laboratory and Professor at École Polytechnique, has just been awarded a CNRS silver medal. It recognises his significant work in the field of plasma physics, with applications for microelectronics and space propulsion.
Patrick Huerre is CNRS Senior Scientist Emeritus and was Professor at Ecole Polytechnique where he co-founded the Hydrodynamics Laboratory with Jean-Marc Chomaz. He has just been awarded the European Society of Mechanics' Fluid Mechanics Prize, for his career devoted to hydrodynamic instabilities.
Sylvie Méléard, Professor at the Centre for Applied Mathematics and Member of the Institut Universitaire de France, has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant to develop her project called SINGER. It will study mathematically specific evolutionary dynamics of cell populations, mainly using stochastic models.
Jean-Jacques Marigo, researcher at the Solid Mechanics Laboratory, and Patrick Huerre, from the Hydrodynamics Laboratory at Ecole Polytechnique, received the Solid Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics prizes from the European Mechanics Society.
