Jean-Luc Dauvergne received his PhD (Model reduction techniques and inverse methods for heat diffusion problems with phase change phenomena) in 2008 at the University of Bordeaux, France. From 2004 to 2005, he worked as R&D Engineering in THERMICAR, a start-up developing new instruments and methods for materials characterization and testing. From 2005 to 2012, he worked as researcher (PhD and Post-doc position) at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering of Bordeaux (I2M UMR CNRS 5295) and from 2008 to 2009, as Assistant Professor at the University of Bordeaux. From 2012 to 2017, he worked as R&D Engineering and Project Manager at EPSILON (ALCEN group), a private company specialized in thermal and mechanical engineering with R&D activity in space industry, on-board systems, buildings and energy systems. In September 2017, he joined CIC energiGUNE as an Associate Researcher.
