Andrea Thomann


Welcome to my website!

I am currently a scientific researcher (Chargée de recherche) at Inria Nancy-Grand Est in the Tonus research team seated at IRMA of the University Strasbourg.

My research interests are in numerical methods for hyperbolic systems. In particular

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics for atmospheric flows, multi-phase flows and multi-material interactions
  • Robust numerical methods with the focus on all Mach number schemes using implicit and semi-implicit/implicit-explicit methods
  • Structure preserving numerical schemes with the focus on well-balancing, asymptotic preserving property, entropy stability, thermodynamic consistency
  • High order finite volume methods involving TVD-MOOD strategies
