Matthieu VANDAMME received his Ph.D. 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. He was awarded the 2016 EMI Leonardo da Vinci Award.
Since 2008, he has been working at Laboratoire Navier (ENPC, CNRS, IFSTTAR) at École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées. He performs Materials Science applied to materials relevant for Civil and Petroleum Engineering (i.e., cementitious materials, coal, clay-based materials…). More precisely, his main interest lies in the mechanics and physics of porous solids.
