Team presentation

The Laboratory of Engineering and Materials Science (LISM) established in January 2012 gathers researchers whose researches are focused on developing, formatting, and analysis of materials and on their properties. All scales from those studies are relevant from nanomaterials to conventional materials and tools. Members of the multidisciplinary LISM are dealing with the fields of agro and biomaterials, metallic materials, polymers and composites, and they study their physical and mechanical properties and also their chemical reactivities.
