Biography

Ludovic Métivier is a CNRS researcher in applied mathematics, at the University of Grenoble Alpes. His research activity focuses on seismic imaging in a strong collaboration with geophysicists, in the framework of the SEISCOPE consortium. His work is dedicated to seismic wave propagation modelling and full waveform inversion. A list of key words summarizing his contribution to the field would include: absorbing layers, iterative solvers for frequency-domain solution, second-order numerical optimization scheme, preconditioning through asymptotic approximations, and more recently optimal transport distance.
