Rémy Boulesteix is an associate Professor at the SPCTS (Science of Ceramic Processes and Surface Treatments), a mixed University of Limoges-CNRS (National Center of Scientific Research) center. He earned a M.Sci. degree from the Faculty of Science, Limoges University in 2006. In 2009, he received a Ph.D. from Limoges University in the research field on sintering and optical properties of transparent rare-earth oxides ceramics. In 2010, he was awarded the prize Jean-Claude Cassaing from Limoges University and the Best Thesis prize of the French Ceramic Group (GFC). Then he joined the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Chemistry of Paris (LCMCP) as a researcher on glass-ceramic materials. His current research interests are on the sintering mechanisms and optical properties of functional ceramics for laser applications. He coauthored more than fifteen publications in international journals and one patent in this research field.
