“Fluid dynamics and epidemiology” – Lydia Bourouiba

  • Catégorie : Séminaire exceptionnel NUMEV
  • Dates : 19 décembre 2023
  • Horaires : A 10h
  • Lieu : Campus Saint-Priest, bât 2, amphi Moreau - Rue Saint Priest - Montpellier

Le Labex NUMEV est particulièrement honoré de recevoir Lydia Bourouiba, scientifique de renommée mondiale pour ses travaux, notamment depuis la pandémie de COVID-19, dans le cadre de son projet étendard SATIS.

Lydia Bourouiba is Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission Laboratory – Fluids and Health Network – MIT – USA.

In the framework of the flagship project SATIS granted by the labex Numev, we are inviting the
prof. Lydia Bourouiba from MIT. Prof. Bououriba is a world expert in fluid mechanics especially
focusing on the interface of fluid dynamics and epidemiology. Her group aims to elucidate the fundamental physical
mechanisms shaping the transmission dynamics of pathogens in human, animal, and plant populations where drops,
bubbles, multiphase and complex flows are at the core. She uses a combination of theoretical (applied mathematics,
including differential equations, linear algebra, nonlinear dynamics, waves and stability) and experimental approaches
(flow visualization, high speed imaging techniques, microscopy, image processing) to elucidate the fundamental
physical mechanisms of transmission of nosocomial diseases, respiratory diseases, waterborne diseases, and foliar
diseases where fluids are ubiquitous and to design and formulate new control strategies.
She is a world class scientist that has been at the forefront of science during the COVID pandemic. Her 2018 TED MED
talk on transmission has been premonitory and shows the depth of her questioning and work. We believe that it will
beneficial to the community of Montpellier that she comes and gives a talk on her lastest research.
