Matthieu Vandamme, PhD

Assistant Professor, Université Paris-Est


Matthieu Vandamme is a Civil Engineer who has been working since 2008 at Laboratoire Navier (ENPC, CNRS, IFSTTAR) at École des Ponts ParisTech (also known as École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées). He is interested in materials relevant for Civil and Environmental Engineering (i.e., concrete, clay-based materials, rocks,…). More precisely, his main focus lies in the mechanics and physics of porous solids.

He received his PhD from the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in 2008, for a study of the creep properties of cementitious materials by nanoindentation. He is also engineer from Ecole Polytechnique (France) and from École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées (France), and received an M.S. in solid mechanics from École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in 2002.
