Scientific thematics
Researcher at the CRISMAT laboratory, I am team leader of the physical metallurgy group. My main centers of interest concern plasticity mechanisms, microstructural characterization, mechanical behavior, magnetic properties of soft ferromagnetic materials, microforming processes and nondestructive tools.
My activities are divided into four main areas : Formability and size effects, elctromechanical and magnetomechanical couplings, Damage and formability, Structural and functional properties of nanostructured materials.
