Apr 8, 2013 - Baptiste Journaux is in Lille this week General
Baptiste Journaux (ENS Lyon) is a visiting scientist with us this week (8-12 april). His interests are on the mineralogy of ice at high pressure with implications on the interiors of icy bodies (icy satellites or ocean exoplanets).
Within this project he performs the first modeling of dislocation in ice X
