About me

Welcome here ! My name is Sylvain Deville. I am a CNRS research director, in the Laboratory of Synthesis and Functionnalisation of Ceramics (LSFC, UMR3080), in Cavaillon, in the sunny south of France. My background and training is materials science, mostly in the field of technical porous and dense ceramics. My current research interest right now is focussed on freezing pretty much anything I can get my hands on, and see how it applies to domains beyond materials science. Check out my research and publications page for more details, or my Google Scholar profile for all my papers. I also wrote a book on the topic.

Being in a lab associated with an industrial group (Saint-Gobain), we also patent some of our discoveries before publishing them. You can find the patents I contributed to here.

Beyond materials science and all other kind of other inspiring research, I am interested in tools and technologies that can facilitate the research process and the life of academics, and will post a few tips and hacks I found useful when I stumble upon them.

You can contact me:

Like everyone, I review a lot of papers.
