  • Structural and physical metallurgy
  • Alloy design
  • Preparation of complex metallic alloys
  • Deformation mechanisms
  • Transmission electron microscopy

Research interest

My current research activities are related to the study of deformation mechanisms governing the plasticity of metallic materials, but also to alloy design and metallurgical preparation. These activities are declined in two sets whose one is mainly related to basic research and the other one is closer to industrial concerns. Since 2012, my researches are strongly anchored around the study, exploration and development of complex multi-component metallic alloys (high-entropy materials).

Teaching and tutoring

  • Head of inorganic and materials chemistry (IUT, semesters 3 and 4) (since 2014)
  • Head of the profesionnal licence degree “Chemistry and Physics of Materials” (since 2006)

Other activities

  • Head of the research group “Alloy Design and Microstructures“, Department of Metallurgy and Inorganic Materials (M2I)
  • INC Europe’s correspondent (CNRS) for ICMPE
  • UPEC/ICMPE International relationships referent
  • Manager of the CNRS training entitled “Basics of transmission electron microscopy” (CNRS Formation Entreprises)  (1 week, since 2010)
  • Coordinator of the ANR collaborative project entitled “Advanced High-Entropy Alloys Development for TURBOmachine applications”. 4 partners : SAFRAN, ONERA, LSPM et ICMPE (2016-2021).
  • Coordinator of an International Emerging Actions (IEA-CNRS; 2020-2022) “Towards the development of advanced refractory high-entropy alloys” (ICMPE & Ruhr University, 2021-2022)
