Year Joined Homerton: 

Louis studied at Ecole normale Superieur de Cachan (France) where he graduated in Mechanical Engineering, and achieved his PhD in vibro-acoustic. He was ranked first at the Agregation of mechanics in 2007. After 6 years of research in the Engineering Department, Louis moved to industry and now works for wave6, the vibro-acoustic simulation software of Dassault Systemes. He continues to collaborate with people in the Engineering Department.

Research Interests: 

  Statistical method for vibro acoustic modelling and their extension to Electromagnetism.

Teaching And Professional Interests: 

Mechanics, vibroacoustic.


PhD, Agregation of mechanic.


2 patents (co-inventor) under review, 15 research articles, 2 book chapters
