Popularization (Vulgarisation)

Page

Current crises reveal the necessity of popularizing science. Not only for arousing interest for scientific careers, but also for developing the analytic mind. It is the reason why popularization is the oldest program of UNESCO, as crucial aspect of the democracy. To perpetuate the results of my research in virtuous dynamics around the transfer of knowledge and know-how between research and society, I give popularization lectures (several times per year). By using some famous fantasy films/books such as Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings, I give basics of plasticity, microscopies and metallurgy.

My talks received the support from the French Society of Physics (SFP).
