The research activities are done at the SIMAP Laboratory and are mainly devoted to relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties in dense or porous metallic materials as well as the microstructural evolution during thermo-mechanical treatment in dense metallic materials. The main classes of materials that have been studied are for dense materials aluminium metal matrix composites, aluminium alloys, magnesium alloys and for porous or cellular materials aluminium alloys, stainless steel. One of the main characteristic of the work is that the microstructure has been characterized using 3D in situ X-ray microtomography during mechanical testing or during thermal treatment mainly at ESRF (European Synchrotron Research Facilities in Grenoble with ID19, ID15 and ID16B mainly) but also using laboratory tomograph (EASYTOM XL tomograph based at SIMAP). The main research fields are :
Over the course of my career I have published 109 articles in international journals and 115 in international conferences (including 20 guests and 77 with conference proceedings). All this gives an H-index of about 39. In addition, there is a book, 3 chapters of books and the coordination of a special issue of physics reviews.
