Jerome Creuze, after obtaining a B.A. degree and an M.S. degree in chemical physics and a Ph.D. degree in physical metallurgy of the University Paris-Sud, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics of the University Paris-Sud since 2001. After a brief stay at the Laboratoire pour l'Utilisation du Rayonnement Electromagnétique (LURE, Orsay, France), he joined the Laboratoire d'Etude des Matériaux Hors Equilibre in 2004, which is a team of the Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d'Orsay (LEMHE/ICMMO, Orsay). During his thesis and later on, Creuze has developed a relevant theoretical dual approach coupling both Ising methods on rigid lattice and Monte Carlo simulations with relaxations to study the phenomena of interfacial segregation in bimetallic alloys. For now five years, he is studying bimetallic nanoparticles from a theoretical point of view. More precisely, he is interested in the modifications of the thermodynamical behaviors of nanoalloys as a function of their size and their structure together with the temperature, with respect to the behaviors observed for bulk alloys.
