École des Ponts ParisTech, France


Matthieu Vandamme is a Researcher in Laboratoire Navier ( at École des Ponts ParisTech (Champs-sur-Marne, France). He received an Engineering degree from Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) and another one from École des Ponts ParisTech. He did his master degree at École des Ponts ParisTech and obtained his PhD from the deparment of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in 2008. His PhD thesis focused on a study of microstructure and fundamental properties of Calcium-Silicate-Hydrates by nanoindentation. The fields of expertise of M. Vandamme are the mechanics and physics of porous solids, the nanoindentation technique, adsorption-induced deformations, and geomaterials (cement, soils, coal,...) in general. A significant part of his research today is dedicated to the study of adsorption-induced deformation of microporous media. This work is applied to coalbed methane and CO2 storage in unminable coals. M. Vandamme works or has worked with Lafarge, Schlumberger, and Total. M. Vandamme teaches a class on the mechanics and physics of porous solids at the graduate level.
