Nicolas Moulin's Homepage


After my Ph.D (2008), I became a Research Engineer in Computational Mechanics at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (France) in the Mechanics and Materials Processing department (Structures and Materials Science division, LGF UMR CNRS 5307). I am also in charge of a Numerical and Simulation platform.

My research field is modelling of strongly coupled multiphysics phenomena applied to materials engineering, fluid/solid mechanics and process simulation. The basic objective is the development of robust mathematical models and numerical tools (i.e. MultiScale and Stabilized finite Element Method) for modelling/understanding direct elaboration processes and the resulting structures and microstructures.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.
