Physics of materials: many secrets still retained

Developing new materials and understanding how they work is the main challenge for engineers in order to keep pace with and predict the rapid evolution of our society. For example, in the context of reducing energy costs, improving the performance of materials is synonymous with constant improvements in experimental techniques, leading to new insights into their operating mechanisms.

How the history of a material influences its performance is a key question at the heart of research in materials science. Despite intense research in this field, no direct correlation and no constitutive physical models have been developed to date. My ongoing research topics include:

Deformation of materials
