Dr Baptiste Gault is the Group Leader for Atom Probe Tomography at the Max-Planck-Institute für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf. He holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Rouen in France, and before joining MPIE, he held various appointments at The University of Sydney, including a position co-funded by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, an EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford, and a brief academic appointment as Assist. Prof. at McMaster University in Canada. From Dec. 2012 – Dec. 2015, he was working as a Senior Publisher in the Materials Science group at Elsevier Ltd. in Oxford, managing the Materials Engineering portfolio that included Acta Materialia & Scripta Materialia amongst other journals. His research group at MPIE has a broad activity with projects aiming to link physical properties to the nanoscale structure and composition of engineering materials finding application in e.g. power generation (Ni-based superalloys), energy conversion (solar cells, thermoelectrics), aerospace (Ti, Co-based superalloys), automotive (high-strength steel, Al-alloys), etc.
