Emmanuel is a postdoctoral fellow who has worked on biomechanics (resistance of trees, popcorn,
phyllotaxis...), fluid-structure interactions (energy harvesting from fluttering flags) and fracture
(dynamic crack propagation in rubber).
He is currently working on elastic buckling thresholds in the presence of defects with Shmuel
Rubinstein and Tobias Schneider (EPFL, Switzerland).
