RESEARCH INTERESTS:

• Attenuation mechanisms and measurements in particulate media (damping).
• Innovative wave-based characterizations of geomaterials (using mechanical and electromagnetic waves).
• Innovative testing techniques (micro-sensor developments and applications).
• Physico-chemical soil behavior (with particular emphasis on clayey soils and cemented sands).
• Particulate geomechanics.
