Mes intérets de recherche se trouvent dans le domaine des équations aux dérivées partielles. Surtout je travaille sur des questions en calcul des variations. En particulier, je m'intéresse à l'élasticité non-linéaire, et à des problèmes variationels qui contiennent en même temps des aspects physiques et géométriques.

I am interested in applying categorical methods to the study of groups and filtrations on them. Precisely, by "groups", I mean mainly some infinite groups, often with a topological flavor, such as braid groups and their generalizations, or automorphisms of free group. And by "filtrations", I mean lower central series of groups, or filtrations similar to them.

Pierre-Alain Jacqmin profile pic
My main research interests lie in Category Theory, and more specifically in Categorical Algebra and Universal Algebra. My aim is to deeper understand algebraic categorical properties such as the Mal'tsev, unital or semi-abelian properties; in particular via some embedding theorems or preservation under the cofiltered limit completion. I am also interested in internal groupoids, weak equivalences and their bicategory of fractions as well as in finiteness spaces and generalized rings of power series.

Aline Michel profile pic
The goal of the research is to explore the exactness properties of the category of preordered groups and of preordered abelian groups, with particular attention to non-additive torsion theories in these categories. We will then develop a new approach to non-abelian homology of preordered groups. A generalization of some of these results to preordered semi-abelian algebras will also be considered.

I work on the interplay between knot theory and higher representation theory. More precisely, I'm interested in an invariant of knots called odd Khovanov homology, which can be thought as a categorification of the Jones polynomial. I try to understand it through the categorification of (the representation theory of) quantum algebras.

My PhD research concerns higher categorical Galois theory in the context of certain algebraic structures of interest called quandles (a notion of symmetry which is used in knot theory and geometry). The category of quandles is algebraic by nature, but features interesting geometrical properties. This provides an interesting context for the study and illustration of higher categorical Galois theory and related meaningful notions of homotopy. Key words: higher categorical Galois theory, racks and quandles, centrality, commutators, higher coverings.
