Patrick RICHARD - Research
I study the physics of granular materials. No one can seriously doubt that granular materials are ubiquitous in our daily lives. They play an important role in many of our industries, such as mining, agriculture, civil engineering and pharmaceutical manufacturing. They also are important for many geological processes (landslides, erosion, dunes migration...)
I also study (or have studied) hard sphere systems, imaging of biological systems and polymers.
