Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher

My research interests are Partial Differential Equations, Potential theory, Functional Analysis, Optimal control theory, Shape Optimization, Nonlocal Operators, and Machine Learning.

Jean-Daniel Djida was born in a small city named Mbe in Cameroon in 1988. After his undergraduate degree, he went on to obtain a Master’s degree from Ngaoundéré University, Cameroon in 2013 and was then selected for another Master’s program in Mathematical Sciences at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Limbe, Cameroon. After AIMS, Jean-Daniel went on to complete as Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

In July 2019, he became a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the AIMS-Cameroon Research Center, supported by the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD). Dr. Djida is currently carrying out his Habilitation in Mathematics at the, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ralph Chill. His research interests are: Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), Potential Theory, Calculus of Variations, Optimal Control Theory, Shape Optimization, and Machine Learning.

He is visiting the Chair of Computational Mathematics at the ERC- DyCon Project led by Prof. Enrique Zuazua (FAUUniversity of Deusto, UAM) at DeustoCCM -Deusto Foundation/University of Deusto.
