Emmanuel Clouet is a research director in the physical metallurgy laboratory at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). Before joining CEA in 2004, Emmanuel was a visiting scientist at the University of Texas at Austin and he received his PhD in Physics in 2004 from École Centrale Paris, France for research performed at CEA and Pechiney (now Constellium). He spent two years on secondment to Lille University, France between 2007 and 2009. Emmanuel’s research focuses on understanding the physical mechanisms controlling microstructure evolution and mechanical properties in metals and alloys used as structural materials, with a particular emphasis on crystal plasticity, irradiation effects and precipitation. His work relies on numerical simulations and modeling ranging from atomic to mesoscopic scale, in close connection with experiments. He received the Jean Rist’s award of the French Society for Metallurgy and Materials in 2008.
