Bernard Dacorogna is a Swiss mathematician, born 15 October 1953, in Alexandria, Egypt. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Geneva in Switzerland and his Ph.D. at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK, in 1980 under the supervision of John M. Ball. He is professor at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. He is a specialist of the calculus of variations and of partial differential equations. He has written several articles and books. The Chaire de la Vallée Poussin 2018 of the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium) is attributed to him.
