Profile Summary

Alexandre Mayer is Professor at the University of Namur (Belgium). He obtained his PhD in 1998 at the University of Namur. He was postdoctoral researcher at the Pennsylvania State University in 2001. He has a permanent position at the University of Namur since 2002. His teaching at the University of Namur includes computational physics, high-performance computing and general relativity. His expertise includes the 3-D quantum-mechanical simulation of electronic field emission and time-dependent electronic transport in nanojunctions (optical rectennas). He also developed a charge-dipole atomistic model for the polarizability of carbon nanostructures. He developed more recently a parallel version of the genetic algorithm for computationally expensive optimization problems in optics (LED, photovoltaics, solar thermal collectors, metamaterial absorbers). His current interest focusses on evolutionary computing and machine learning.
