Introduction

Lilia Ghaffour is a Ph.D. candidate in the Division of Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (CEMSE) at KAUST. She has a master
degree in Applied Mathematics from University of Mostaganem (Mathematics and Computer Science), Algeria. She joined the Ph.D. degree program in Appl. Math. and Computational Sc. at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in fall 2016. She is interested in the study of control and inverse problem for partial differential equations (PDE's) and the extension to fractional in time/space PDE's.

Research Interests
