Abdelmalek Zine holds a PhD in Numerical Analysis from Université Pierre et Marie Curie – Paris-VI and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from École polytechnique de Montréal. He is Assistant Professor at École Centrale de Lyon since 1992. His research activities address the numerical analysis of partial differential equations from the modelling of complex fluids and solids. Inverse problems and reduced models in fluid-structure interaction are also part of his research themes. His teachings focus on mathematical and numerical tools and their application to engineering problems.
