Marius Tucsnak
Visiting Professor of Mathematics

Marius Tucsnak is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Bordeaux in France and presently a Visiting Professor of Mathematics at NYU Shanghai. He holds a Master's degree in Mathematics from the University of Bucarest, Romania and a PhD degree from the University of Orléans, France (1992). In 1995 he obtained his Habilitation pour Diriger les Recherches from the “Université Pierre et Marie Curie”, Paris. In 1992 he became Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Versailles, France. In 1997 he became a full Professor of Mathematics at the University of Nancy, France. He moved to the University of Bordeaux in 2015. He was an invited speaker to the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM), 2022, and since 2013 he has been a Member of Institut Universitaire de France (IUF). His fields of expertise are the analysis and the control of systems governed by partial differential equations.
