Aurélien Merkel

Researcher in acoustics

News

I will join the Université de Lorraine in september 2019. This website should be transferred very soon.

About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in acoustics (and soon a assistant professor). My research interests are the wave propagation in granular media, the acoustic nonlinearity and nonreciprocity, and acoustic metamaterials.

Previous positions

From february 2017 to August 2019, I was working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Phonometa group of Johan Christensen, in Madrid, Spain.

From november 2013 to august 2016, I was working as a postdoctoral fellow at the LAUM, in Le Mans, France.

From april 2013 to october 2016, I was working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Multi Scale Mechanics of Pr. Stefan Luding, in Enschede, Netherlands.

From september 2011 to may 2012, I was working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Universidad de Chile, in Santiago de Chile, Chile.

From september 2010 to august 2011, I was working as a teaching and research assistant at the LAUM, in Le Mans, France.

PhD thesis

Theoretical and experimental study of acoustic wave propagation within three-dimensional granular phononic crystals.
Supervisors: Vincent Tournat and Vitalyi Gusev.
Defended on the 14 of december 2010 at the Université du Mans, France.
