Nicolas Gast

Since 2014, I am a research associate in Inria, Grenoble. My research interests focus on stochastic models and stochastic optimization with a particular emphasis on mean field approximation methods. The applications of my work spans stochastic networks, design of control algorithms for large-scale systems (such as communication networks and electricity networks).

I am coordinator of the ANR project JCJC REFINO (refined mean field optimization), funded from 2019 to 2024 and of the Grenoble IDEX project Flex-MS (funded 2017 to 2019). I used to be part of the European FP7 project Quanticol.
