About me

Welcome here ! My name is Sylvain Deville. I am a CNRS research director, at the Institut Lumière Matière, in Lyon, 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.

I previously spent 14 years 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:

My ORCID page is here.

Like everyone, I review a lot of papers.

I am always looking for talented people to join the group, and am particulary interested in people coming with skills and backgrounds we do not have in the lab yet. Positions openings depend of course on funding opportunities, contact me if you are interested.
