KAUST, Saudi Arabia


Prof. Gilles Lubineau is Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Associate Dean of the Faculty, PSE Division at KAUST. He is the Director for COHMAS (Composite and Heterogeneous Materials Analysis and Simulation, an integrated environment for composite engineering that he created in 2009 when joining KAUST).

Current research interests include: integrity at short and/or long-term of composite materials and structures, inverse problems for the identification of constitutive parameters, multi-scale coupling technique, multifunctional materials and modeling, nano and multifunctional materials and devices. He collaborates with many industries from a variety of sectors including the Energy sector, the Transportation sector or the Consumer electronics sector.

Before joining KAUST, Prof. Lubineau was a faculty member at the École Normale Supérieure of Cachan, and a non-resident faculty member at the École Polytechnique, France. He also served as a visiting researcher at UC-Berkeley. Following his "aggregation" in theoretical mechanics, Prof. Lubineau earned a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering and an HDR from École Normale Supérieure de Cachan (ENS-Cachan).

He has authored over 200 journal and conference papers. His work covers a very wide expertise from Material Science to Composite Engineering and Computational Mechanics as testified by the diversity of his publications in journals such as Advanced materials, Journal of the Mechanics of Physics of Solids, Scientific Reports, Composite Structures, Composites Part A, Macromolecules, Langmuir, Small, Nanoscale, etc. He received the Daniel Valentin award recognizing his accomplishments in the science of composite materials. He is also board members for various journals, including the International Journal of Damage Mechanics. Prof. Lubineau is an elected Member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.
