Denis Villemonais




About me

I am an assistant professor in applied mathematics in the École des Mines de Nancy and Institut Élie Cartan de Lorraine (University of Lorraine, France) and a member of the TOSCA team (INRIA).

Denis head in Valparaiso, Chile My researches focus on Markov processes with absorbing states conditioned to not be absorbed and, more precisely, on quasi-stationary distributions. Beside the existence, uniqueness or domain of attraction of quasi-stationary distributions, I am also interested in the approximation of the conditioned distribution of Markov processes and, more precisely, in a method based on the hydrodynamic limit of a mean-field interacting particle system.

I am also interested in medical, biological and ecological models. In particular, in collaboration with the CHU of Nancy, we study the telomere length distribution evolution during adult life and its medical implications.
