Benoit ROMAN - Speaker 2019

Benoit ROMAN is a Research Director at the CNRS, working in the Physics and Mechanics of Heterogeneous Media laboratory. He is interested in the physics and mechanics of phenomena that surround us, but which are far from being well understood: tearing, crumpling. His team is seeking to draw inspiration from biological morphogenesis to make materials capable of changing shape.

Benoit Roman co-authored the book "Du merveilleux caché dans le quotidien, la physique de l'élégance" (Flammarion) which received the Roberval prize and the "le goût des sciences" prize.
