Aurelien Neveu’s research activities mainly focus on the understanding of granular materials at different scales. During his PhD he developed discrete numerical models to describe fragmentation mechanics of cohesive  granular materials by taking into account the complex micro-properties of the grains. Dr Neveu then moved to study segregation in gravity-driven rapid flows as well as aeolian transport of granular materials, with huge
implications for natural disasters. He is now working as a particle scientist at Granutools, performing research on powder characterisation.
