    Research Engineer, Materials Science, Ph.D.
    - Experience in experimental reproduction of space environments applied to materials studies.
    - Assessment of new high-temperature thermo-optical ceramic and metallic coatings for Solar Probe Plus (NASA).
    - Young but valuable knowledge of the industry-level material selection and evaluation process.
    - 4 articles in peer review journals and 3 oral presentations in international conferences during a 3 years PhD.


    Professional experience

    June 2015-Today    
    I am currently looking for my next position. I strongly wish to keep contributing to the assessment of materials for space applications, ideally at laboratory-level, with a particular interest in experimental studies requiring a demanding scientific background in materials science, physics and chemistry. I am available right away and internationally.

    In the frame of the development of the Solar Probe Plus mission (NASA, $1.4B, launch in 2018):
    -    Experimental assessment of the high temperature behavior and performance of candidate materials: optically selective ceramics for the main Thermal Protection System and tuned emissivity refractory metals for Sun-facing scientific instruments, with an emphasis on the thermo-optical properties, thermal vacuum outgassing and interaction with the near-Sun environment (synergy between high temperature - solar wind - UVs).
    -    Large experimental tools: ˜500 hours of first-hand experimental work with a 1 MW solar furnace associated to the instrumented MEDIASE facility (directional-spectral emissivity, optical temperature measurement up to 2500 K, ion gun, Faraday cup, VUV source, QCM, Mass Spectrometer), plus various material characterizations (DRX, MEB-EDX, Metallography, 3D-optical and mechanical profilometry, BRDF, Nano-Indentation).
    -    Support to the realization of Thermal Test Models for the FIELDS instrument.
    •    This work was part of the effort in view of the TRL-6 and PDR of the SWEAP instrument (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA) and the PDR of the FIELDS instrument (SSL, Berkeley Univ.).
    •    Achievement: performance demonstration of two coatings (one metallic, one ceramic) bringing a decisive cooling of the main Thermal Protection System and of one scientific instrument.
