Dr Yves Capdeboscq

Fellow in Mathematics


I was trained as an engineer in Ecole Centrale Paris in France. I spent the last year of that degree in Cambridge (taking the ‘Part III’ course in Mathematics). I then went on to do a D.Phil. in Mathematics in Paris 6 (France), a post-doc in Rutgers (USA), and came back to France to become a lecturer. I came to Oxford in 2007.


In Queen’s I am the tutor for Applied Mathematics: I like mathematical analysis with applications. At the Mathematical Institute, I am currently teaching Integration (Analysis III) for prelims, and a course related to the analysis of partial differential equations for graduate students.


My main research areas lie in partial differential equations and numerical analysis. I am especially interested in the characterisation of noticeable interactions between small scales and large scales, as it appears in homogenisation theory, impedance tomography and hybrid imaging inverse problems.
