Dr. Sylvain Reboux
Dr. Sylvain Reboux was a postdoctoral fellow with the MOSAIC Group from October 2008 until June 2012. He is a French citizen, born in 1982 in Annemasse, France. After leaving the MOSAIC Group, Sylvain became a Research Team Leader at ASCOMP, a producer of commercial fluid-dynamics simulation software based in Zurich, Switzerland. Since 2015, Sylvain is a Senior Software Engineer with ZMT Zurich MedTech AG, a producer of medical devices.
Sylvain prepared the competitive examination to the "Grandes Ecoles" at Lycée Henri IV (Paris, 1999-2001), majoring in mathematics and physics. In 2001, he entered the Ecole Polytechnique, specialising in engineering and fluid mechanics. In 2004 he worked on a multiscale method for Large-Eddy Simulation of turbulent two-phase flow during an undergraduate internship at the Institute for Energy Technology at ETH Zürich.
Sylvain did a Master in fluid dynamics at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, 2004-2005) and carried out his Master thesis in the group of Prof. Daan Frenkel at the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics, The Netherlands (2005). There he studied electro-kinetic effects during DNA translocation using lattice-Boltzmann simulations.
Between 2005 and 2008, Sylvain was a PhD student in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, UK. He worked on multiscale mathematical models for cellular adhesion and deformation using asymptotic methods. He was supervised by Prof. Oliver Jensen and Dr. Giles Richardson.
During his postdoc in the MOSAIC Group, Sylvain worked on self-organizing particle methods for multi-scale simulations of continuum models, and he significantly contributed to the new core architecture and code of the PPM Library.
