Head of Material - Expert, DAHER

Biography : 

After my graduation in 2009 from a Physical and Chemistry Engineering school in Bordeaux, I have defended a Ph.D in Chemistry in 2012 (Orsay University). The subject was carried out under the guidance of academic and industrial institutions (CEA, Airbus, Porcher...) and concerned the growth of carbon nanotubes on carbon fiber for thermoset and thermoplastic composite in order to improve strike impact. For the time being, I am working in DAHER for almost 10 years as a Material Engineer and as head of Material since 2018. My work is dedicated to screen and qualify material for DAHER process by identifying key material parameters to have the appropriate process window. In this context some tests on raw material but also after processing are performed to ensure material stability.
