I studied at the University of Rennes (France), and performed by PhD thesis in the University of Poitiers (France). Click on an item for more information.
2002 : Second-year diploma in Physics
2005-2008 : PhD thesis in the Laboratoire de Physique des Matériaux (Phymat), UMR 6630 CNRS/Université de Poitiers : "Study by atomic-scale simulations of the formation of dislocation loops from surface ledges"
This PhD thesis was performed under supervision of Dr. Sandrine Brochard, Dr. Laurent Pizzagalli and Dr. Pierre Beauchamp. The subject was dealing with the study by atomic-scale simulations of the very first stages of plasticity in strained materials, in particular the nucleation of dislocation from several surface ledges.
More information is available from this page. You can also check the list of communications we made on the subject, as well as the manuscript of the thesis (in French).
During these three years, I also attended to the following training courses:
- June 2007: Training course for SIESTA, organised by CECAM
- December 2006: Training course for parallel programming with Fortran and MPI, organised by IDRIS
- Janv.-June 2006: Course on science history and epistemology, Université de Poitiers (teacher: P. Rémaud).
- Janv.-June 2006: Course on LaTeX.
