Yohan Davit: About me

I'm a research scientist at CNRS (CR ), working in the porous media group which is part of the Institute of Fluids Mechanics of Toulouse. My background is in physics and engineering but I also love working at the interface with mathematics and biology. I am partircularly fond of bacterial biofilms, flows in porous structures and transport phenomena in the brain.
