on the 19 October 2022
Researcher of the PSM team at LIphy, professor at the University of Grenoble Alpes. See you on November 22 for the awarding of his prize.
Researcher at the Interdisciplinary Physics Laboratory (CNRS/University of Grenoble Alpes), professor of physics at the University of Grenoble Alpes.
Jean-Louis Barrat holds a PhD from the University of Paris 6. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Munich and Santa Barbara. After having been from 1988 to 1994 a CNRS researcher at the ENS of Lyon, he joined the University of Lyon, where he created a research group on modeling in materials science. In 2011, he joined the University of Grenoble and received the CNRS silver medal in 2012. Jean-Louis Barrat's research focuses on statistical physics, condensed matter and materials physics. As a specialist in complex fluids, his field of expertise is broad: he combines his theoretical work with more applied aspects, some of which are related to engineering sciences such as the rheology of complex fluids. His work on the physics of liquids and interfaces is internationally recognized.
