Rheology of Earth Materials :

Closing the gap between timescales in the laboratory and in the mantle

10 september 2020: New PhD student at UCLouvain: Alex Pip

Alex graduated from the UCLouvain in 2020 as a material science and chemistry engineer. His master thesis focused on strain engineering in semiconductor materials including experimental measurement and simulation of strain in micro/nanoscale devices. During his PhD supervised by Prof. JP Raskin and Prof. H. Idrissi, he will focus on the development and the use of new micro/nanomechanical devices dedicated for quantitative in-situ thermo-tensile testing inside a transmission electron microscope.
