Prof. Jerome Droniou

Head of the Applied & Computational Mathematics section, School of Mathematics
Monash University


Jerome obtained his PhD at the Aix-Marseille university in 2001.
Shortly after he was recruited at the University of Montpellier 2,
where he stayed until 2011 when he moved to Melbourne, Australia. He started working at Monash in 2012.

His research expertise is in numerical methods for partial differential equations; he specifically focuses on schemes that can be applied on meshes made of generic polygons/polyhedras, and have an arbitrary order of accuracy. Combining theoretical and numerical analysis, he has developed many innovative tools for the rigorous study of such schemes, including for non-linear models like flows in porous media, Navier-Stokes equations, or non-Newtonian flows. His recent interests revolve around the design and analysis of discretisations on generic meshes of Hilbert differential complexes (such as the de Rham complex).
