Andrea Natale | I am a junior researcher at Inria Lille - Nord Europe, affiliated to the Laboratoire Paul Painlevé (Maths departement, Université de Lille).

I am currently a junior researcher at INRIA Lille, where I am a memeber of the project-team RAPSODI.

Previously, I was a postdoc in the Laboratoire de Mathématiques d'Orsay (LMO) at Univesité Paris-Sud, where I worked with Quentin Mérigot. Before that, I was a postdoc in the MOKAPLAN team at INRIA Paris , where I worked with François-Xavier Vialard , Thomas O. Gallouët and Jean-David Benamou.

I completed my PhD at Imperial College London in 2017 under the supervision of Colin Cotter.

My research is at the intersection of fluid mechanics, optimal transport and numerical analysis. I am particularly interested in the analysis and the numerical approximation of models describing the atmosphere and the oceans. I develop structure-preserving discretizations exploiting the variational structure of such models. I am also interested in the development of numerical methods for data analysis problems in experimental fluid dynamics and oceanography.
