Alexis Deschamps did his undergraduate studies at Ecole Centrale de Paris in France, followed by a Master degree at McMaster University in Canada and a PhD at Grenoble Institute of Technology, France. After a post-doctoral stay at UBC, Vancouver, Canada, he has held an academic position at the Grenoble Institute of Technology since 1998, with research stays at Monash University, UBC and NTNU. His main research focus is on the experimental determination of the kinetics of phase transformations, mainly in aluminum alloys and in steels, using the combination of large scale facilities, electron microscopy and atom probe tomography. His broader research area deals with the link between the obtained microstructures and various properties, including strength, strain hardening, fracture and corrosion.
