Charline Le Nue has recently joined the mineAlloy team at Deakin University as postdoctoral research fellow. Charline graduated in Chemistry at The National Superior School of Chemistry (ENSCCF) in Clermont-Ferrand, France. She subsequently obtained her Master’s degree in the field of Metallic Materials, working on the development and the characterisation of new maraging stainless steels (precipitation hardened martensitic steels) for aerospace applications in the research department of Aubert & Duval Company.
Charline conducted her PhD at the Clement Ader Institute (ICA in Albi, France) and at the Inter-university Center of Materials Research and Engineering (CIRIMAT in Toulouse, France) in collaboration with Aubert & Duval Company. The title of her PhD thesis is “Study of the relationship between microstructure and fracture toughness of maraging stainless steels”.
Following her PhD, Charline completed a post-doc position at the Science, Engineering, Materials and Processes laboratory (SIMaP in Grenoble, France) in collaboration with The Technology Research Institute of Materials, Metallurgy and Processes (IRT-M2P in Metz, France) and Safran Landing Systems (Bidos, France). The project focused on the influence of grinding and shot peening processes on the microstructure of the Custom 465 maraging stainless steel.
