Professor of Mechanical Engineering, PI of Mechanics of Composites for Energy and Mobility (MCEM)
Building 4 Level 2 Office 2216
Professor Lubineau is the Director and Principal Investigator at Mechanics of Composites for Energy and Mobility Laboratory, Mechanical Engineering Program, PSE Division, KAUST. His expertise covers a wide range of fields related to composite materials. His 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, nano and/or multifunctional materials. He has over 200 published papers in journals spanning from material science (Advanced Materials, Macromolecules, etc..) to theoretical mechanics (JMPS, CST, Scientific Reports) and applied maths (IJNME, CMAME, etc.).
As of 31st of July 2022 professor Lubineau took over as interim dean for the Physical Science and Engineering Division.
