Dr. Matthieu Gresil joined the School of Materials in February 2014 as Lecturer in Composite Materials. He obtained his BSc degree in Physics (University of Nantes, France) and MSc degree in Physics option Matter and Materials (University of Nantes, France). He completed his PhD from Ecole Normale Superieure at Cachan, France in 2009 in collaboration with DCNS (French Navy) on the integration of functions (structural health monitoring and electromagnetic shielding) in composite materials. Then, he joined the University of South Carolina as Post-doctoral Research Fellow (2010-2014) and conducted research on SHM using multi-physics finite element to study guided wave propagation in composite and metallic structures.

His interdisciplinary research is focused on (i) multifunctionality that could be built into a composite structure, such as health monitoring, self-healing, reprocessing, recycling, thermal-load dissipation, and electrical ehnecement; (ii) emerging polymer materials such as vitrimers which can heal and morph witth a thermal trigger; and (iii) bio-inspired 2D/3D morphing materials using printing technology and nanotechnology.
