Opportunities for Students

I am always looking for new students interested in doing research in the fields of Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering. I have projects for undergraduate students, Master’s students, and Ph.D. students regarding constitutive modeling of soils, dynamic numerical modeling, 1D and 2D site effects, and seismic slope stability.

All teaching is done in French at the Ecole Polytechnique, but all students have the possibility to write their thesis in English. Native French speakers must demonstrate a perfect comprehension of English and the ability to produce scientific writing in English. Students interested in joining my research group should contact me by email with a CV and a cover letter in English or in French.
