Research interest

My areas of interest are: new metal recycling process ; design of innovative alloys ; the relationship between chemical composition, processing conditions, thermodynamic stability and mechanical behavior ; multi-scale characterization of the microstructure. Broadly speaking, I am also involved in improving the sustainability of metallurgy.

My on-going projects are

  • Solid state recycling of aluminium alloys
    • Collaboration with IUL (Institute of Forming Technology and Lightweight, Dortmund univ.), GeM (Research Institute in Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Centrale Nantes) and IRCP (Institute of Research of Chimie Paris)
    • Tools: XPS (X-ray Photoélectron Spectroscopy), oxidation study
  • Strengthening of metallic alloys by chemical architecturation
    • Project ANR JCJC CAMEL (2018-2022), coordinator: M. Laurent-Brocq
    • Tools: flash sintering, FEM (finite element modelling), annealing treatments
    • Collaboration with Material Center (Mines ParisTech)
  • Optimization of corrosion resistance in multi-components alloys
    • Collaboration with IRCP (Chimie ParisTech)
    • Tools : processing by melting and casting, Calphad method

Past projects

  • Precipitation in high entropy alloys (HEA) : thermodynamic, kinetic and mechanic
    • Project ANR Turbo-AHEAD (2017-2021), coordinator : J.P. Couzinié
    • Tools : Calphad method, melting and thermomechanical treatments, creep
