Statement of Research Interest
Mathieu Bauchy is a computational material scientist, specialized in amorphous and cementitious materials, with strong interest in the relationship between composition, micro-structure, and macroscopic properties of engineering interest.
Specific research projects include:
- Mechanical Properties of Materials: Enhancing the ductility of glasses, developing ultra-tough glasses for smartphone screens and stronger concrete.
- Relaxation and Aging of Materials: Understanding glass relaxation (processing of OLED substrate), predicting long-term creep deformations in cementitious materials.
- Reactivity of Materials: Reducing the CO2 impact of concrete through supplementary cementitious materials, enhancing glass durability for nuclear waste storage.
- Resistance to Irradiation: Understanding and predicting the influence of irradiation on minerals and glasses.
- Topological Constraint Theory: Topological nano-engineering of disordered materials.
Prior to joining UCLA, Mathieu was a Posdoctoral Assistant at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received his Ph.D. at Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris). His thesis was dedicated to the development of high-performance silicate and chalcogenide glasses by means of atomic-scale simulations.
