Armand Bernou

PhD candidate

LPSM, Sorbonne Université


I am a PhD candidate at Sorbonne Université under the supervision of Nicolas Fournier (LPSM, Sorbonne Université) and Stéphane Mischler (CEREMADE, Université Paris Dauphine). My research focuses on the interactions between analysis and probabilities in evolution problems, in particular the problem of obtaining quantitative rates of convergence towards equilibrium for kinetic equations. The tools for those studies are both probabilistic (coupling methods, Lyapunov and martingales techniques) and analytic, such as hypocoercivity/hypodissipativity, spectral gap techniques, deterministic Harris’ theorems and semigroup analysis.


  • Stochastic Analysis of Markov processes, Coupling techniques, (Sub)geometric “Meyn-Tweedie” theory
  • Semigroup techniques, Hypodissipativity, (sub)geometric deterministic Harris’ theorems.

Simulations of free-transport dynamics with boundary effects

In this page, I present several simulations related to the free-transport dynamics with boundary effects which I have studied.
