[EVENT] AfterLab by Francisco Chinesta – 10 March 2022
On Thursday 10th March 5.00pm (SG Time), the French Lab Singapore will be holding its monthly casual ‘AfterLab’ with Francisco “Paco” Chinesta, Professor of computational physics at ENSAM Institute of Technology (Paris, France) and director of the CNRS@CREATE DesCartes Program.
Francisco Chinesta is currently full Professor of computational physics at ENSAM Institute of Technology (Paris, France), Honorary Fellow of the “Institut Universitaire de France” – IUF- and Fellow of the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering. He is the president of the ESI Group scientific committee and director of its scientific department. He was (2008-2012) AIRBUS Group chair professor and since 2013 he is ESI Group chair professor on advanced modeling and simulation of materials, structures, processes and systems. He received many scientific awards: IACM Zienkiewicz award (New York, 2018), the ESAFORM award, … He is author of more than 350 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and more than 1000 contributions in conferences. He was president of the French association of computational mechanics (CSMA) and is director of the CNRS research group (GdR) on model order reduction techniques in engineering sciences, editor and associate editor of many journals. He received many distinctions, among them the Academic Palms, the French Order of Merit, … in 2018 the Doctorate Honoris Causa at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and in 2019 the Silver medal from the French CNRS. He is now the Director of the CNRS@CREATE DesCartes program – This program aims to develop disruptive hybrid AI to serve the smart city and enable optimized decision-making in complex situations for critical urban systems.
Prof Dominique Baillargeat, Scientific Executive Director of CNRS@CREATE, will introduce CNRS@CREATE before Paco Chinesta’s intervention.
