Vincent Calvez has been awarded the EMS 2016 prize for his work at the intersection between mathematics and biology. Through his research on the collective migration of bacteria within a large concentration wave, he has made a fundamental contribution to mathematical analysis and the development of new mathematical models, with applications in biology and biophysics.
The EMS prize awarded by the European Mathematical Society was presented at the 7th European Congress of Mathematics in Berlin, held from 18 to 22 July 2016.
The European Congress of Mathematics, held every four years, provides the occasion for the EMS to award a number of prizes, including the EMS prizes to ten young researchers who must be under 35, European or working in Europe, and carrying out research in the field of Mathematics.
Vincent Calvez, CNRS Young Researcher at the Pure and Applied Mathematics Unit (CNRS/ENS de Lyon), is a member of the Inria NuMed (Numerical Modelling in Medicine) project team.
