Olivier Huber is a post-doc in the group of Michael Hintermüller working on games with PDE constraints, within the SFB TRR 154 project.

Previously, he was a post-doc at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (University of Wisconsin–Madison), working with Michael Ferris. His research interest are in using a variational approach for the analysis and simulation of physical system (like mechanical systems with impacts and friction) and the development of optimization solvers.

He did his PhD in the BIPOP team (now TRIPOP) at INRIA Grenoble Rhône– Alpes, on discrete-time Sliding Mode Control for sampled-data systems. His advisors were Bernard Brogliato and Vincent Acary.
