Marion Risbet, University of Technology of Compiègne, France

bio-risbetMarion RISBET graduated from a BS in Fundamental Physics and a MS in Materials Science. She completed her doctoral thesis in Mechanical engineering at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC, France) in 2002 and then a post-doctoral degree at the Ecole Centrale Paris in 2003 in collaboration with Safran group. She is now Professor in UTC at the Laboratory of Mechanics, Materials and Acoustics (Roberval UMR CNRS 7337) in the Materials and Surfaces team. She has been Head of the Materials Major in the Mechanical Engineering Department between 2012 and 2017, and is now supervising the research platform team of Roberval Research Unit. She has been a member of the International Scientific Committee of the International Fatigue Design Conference since 2007, and Committee member of FDSM since 2016.

Her research interests focus on the influence of the microstructure on a fine scale on plasticity and early stages of fatigue damage in metallic alloys with a special attention for defining microstructural scale lengths pertinent for physically-based models developments. Her industrial collaborations lead her to focus on various themes requiring the implementation of dedicated multi-scale and multi-technical experimental approaches (rolling contact fatigue damage in railway applications, linear friction welding of titanium and nickel alloys for the aerospace industry, laser welding for the automotive industry, etc.) leading to recent collaborations with ArcelorMittal, British Steel, GIMA (AGCO-CLAAS joint venture), Airbus, RATP and SNCF.
