Main project: Though hybrid nanolaminates
Funding: FNRS
Supervisor(s): Thomas Pardoen, Hosni Idrissi

I am particularly interested in the mechanical characterization of the multi layered materials and their deformation mechanisms. I use nanoindentation and lab-on-chip techniques together with TEM observations of the deformed nanolaminates to enhance the understanding of their surprising mechanical behavior.
