Thierry Chartier is Research Director at CNRS in the Institute of Research for Ceramics in Limoges, France. He received an engineers’ degree from ENSCI, and an MSc in Ceramic Materials and Surface Treatments from the Univ. of Limoges (1982). He obtained his Ph.D. in 1985 concerning the relationship between elaboration-microstructure and properties of SiAlON.
His main research interests are ceramic processing with the understanding of fundamental mechanisms that take place during material transformations in the manufacturing of ceramic parts and the development of new processing technologies. His current research concerns additive manufacturing. These innovative technologies have applications in healthcare, energy, environment, ICT….
T. Chartier is the author/co-author of 190 reviewed papers and 41 patents. He was chairman of the 13th conference of the European Ceramic Society (ECerS) held in Limoges in 2013. He is member of the World Academy of Ceramics, member of the French Ceramic Group (GFC) council and Fellow of the ECerS. He received the “Chaudron” award from the French Society of Metallurgy and Materials (SF2M) (2011), the JECS Trust Award (2015) and the Materials Innovation Medal of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) (2017).
