Emmanuelle Marquis

In January of 2011, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, welcomed Emmanuelle Marquis to the faculty.  Emmanuelle comes to the University from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, where she was the holder of a prestigious Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in the Department of Materials. Prior to her time in Oxford, Emmanuelle was a member of staff in the Materials Physics Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California where she led atom-probe tomography research on alloy systems. 

Emmanuelle received a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Pierre and Marie Curie, a member of the Sorbonne Universities consortium, while also attending the prestigious Ecole des Mines de Paris, a school ranked among the top French Engineering Schools, from which she received her M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering.  For her Ph.D., she worked with Professors David Seidman and David Dunand at Northwestern University. 

Emmanuelle‘s research focuses on understanding and quantifying the mechanisms controlling microstructural evolution in alloy systems, interfacial properties, and irradiation effects in materials. To complement her experimental work, she forges close ties to groups in computational and theoretical materials science.  Her work is pushing the limits of atomic scale microscopy techniques, i.e. atom-probe tomography and high resolution transmission and scanning transmission electron microscopy and Emmanuelle is continuously working on improving these imaging techniques and developing new approaches to data analysis. She has also succeeded in expanding the realm of atom-probe tomography to include the analysis of microstructural features in bulk oxides. 

Emmanuelle’s considerable expertise in nano-scaled chemical and structural analysis has lead to her involvement in the organization of several international conference symposia (Microscopy & Microanalysis, TMS and the Gordon conference on Physical Metallurgy). She is  also currently leading an effort on developing standards for atom-probe tomography. 

While not engaged in materials research, Emmanuelle is an accomplished musician.  Clarinet, saxophone, guitar and didgeridoo are a few of the instruments she has been known to play. 

Emmanuelle is excited about the installation of the newly acquired state of the art LEAP 4000HR atom probe microscope in the University of Michigan's North Campus Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory and is looking forward to continuing her national and international collaborations and establishing new relationships with the faculty of the University of Michigan.
