Clément Rigal

PhD student at Université Gustave Eiffel (formerly Ifsttar) in Nantes, and ICube laboratory in Strasbourg.

Research interests/field of activity

My thesis focuses on the modelling of suspensions of encapsulated phase change materials in porous media, a reversible system that could be used for thermal regulation of urban structures.
To this end, theoretical and numerical studies have to be performed at different scales to account for the numerous physical parameters involved in the dynamics of this complex flow.

Short Bio

Following graduation in physics from Paris-Saclay University, I completed a master’s degree in fundamental physics at Aix-Marseille University in 2021.
