Dr Gault currently holds a joint appointment between Imperial College London and the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf, where he is the Group Leader for atom probe tomography. Since Feb. 2018, he also leads an ERC-Consolidator funded group, targeting hydrogen in metals using atom probe tomography.
Dr Gault obtained his PhD in physics in Rouen (Feb. 2007) where he developed a new generation of pulsed-laser atom probe microscopes. He then worked as a research scientist at the Australian Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis at the University of Sydney from 2007-2009 and 2010-2012 (jointly with ANSTO). In between, he held an Intra-European Marie Curie fellowship at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford where he worked on thermoelectric materials. In 2012, he started a brief academic appointment as Assist. Prof. at McMaster University in Canada. From Dec. 2012 to Dec. 2015, he interrupted his research career, and took on a position of Senior Publisher in the Materials Science group at Elsevier Ltd. in Oxford, looking after the Materials Engineering portfolio that comprises Acta Materialia & Scripta Materialia.Since April 2013, I am also an academic visitor at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford. He became Group Leader at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in January 2016.
He is the Editor for Materialia, and an associate Editor for Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia.
