Guilhem MOLLON

Guilhem Mollon graduated as a civil engineer in 2005 and  got his teaching fellowship in 2006. He obtianed his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering in 2007 and his first post-doctoral fellowhsips in Grenoble (3SR) and Hong Kong (HKUST). He was recruited by the LaMCoS laboratory, in the Tribology research team, as an Associate Professor in 2013, and has been a visiting researcher at ENS Paris since 2019.
