Biographical Sketch (bio-english, bio-french)

    Habib Ammari is a Director of Research at the Department of Mathematics and Applications at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. He received a Bachelor's degree in 1992 and a Master's degree in 1993, and a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, all from the Ecole Polytechnique, France. Then, he received a Habilitation degree in Mathematics from the University of Pierre & Marie Curie in Paris three years later. Habib Ammari is a world leading expert in wave propagation phenomena, asymptotic analysis, and mathematical imaging. He published more than 180 research papers, seven high profile research-oriented books and edited seven books on contemporary issues in applied mathematics. Habib Ammari advised twenty five PhD students and eighteen postdoctoral researchers. He was awarded a European Research Council Advanced Grant in 2010 in recognition of the excellence of his achievements and his outstanding research program in mathematical imaging. He was also the recipient of the Kuwait Prize 2013 in Basic Sciences, which is the highest honor accorded by the Emir of Kuwait for intellectual achievement.
