Short bio

Marcelo Forets is a researcher working on scientific computing and mathematical methods for engineering sciences. He was born in Uruguay (Montevideo, 1988), graduated in Physics from Univ. de la Republica (Facultad de Ciencias), and then in Electrical Engineering (Facultad de Ingenieria). He moved to France for a PhD in Mathematics and Informatics (Univ. Joseph Fourier, 2013-2015), writing a thesis on quantum computational models and mathematical physics of the quantum random walk. He is currently a second year post-doc researcher at VERIMAG laboratory of Université Grenoble Alpes, and his research interests lie in the frontier of applied mathematics (optimization, numerical analysis) and formal verification (continuous and hybrid dynamical systems, robust control).


Hi! My name is Marcelo Forets, I am Uruguayan, and I made my undergraduate studies at Universidad de la Republica (Montevideo, Uruguay).

I hold a PhD in Mathematics and Informatics from UGA (Dec’ 2015). My PhD advisors were Pablo Arrighi (Professor at Laboratoire d’Informatique Fondamentale, Aix-Marseille Université) and Alain Joye (Professor at Institut Fourier, Université Grenoble Alpes).

Currently, I work as a post-doc researcher at TEMPO team led by Oded Maler (CNRS Researcher at VERIMAG, Univ. Grenoble Alpes). It is located at VERIMAG laboratory, from Universite Grenoble Alpes (Grenoble, France). My post-doc is directed by Goran Frehse (MdC at VERIMAG, Univ. Grenoble Alpes).

Topics of current research activity

  • Nonlinear dynamical systems, control and modeling.
  • Algorithmic verification and safety properties of cyber-physical systems. Hybrid systems. Reachability analysis under uncertainty.
  • Polynomial optimization and the generalized moments problem.
