Sébastien R.L. Guenneau is a Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) working in the CNRS-Imperial Abraham de Moivre Unité Mixte Internationale. His main research interests lie in the physics of metamaterials for an enhanced control of wave and diffusion phenomena (including negative refraction and cloaking), in homogenization of multiscale periodic and quasi-periodic media, and in finite element models of acoustic, electromagnetic, hydrodynamic and elastodynamic waves.

He serves as an Editorial board member of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London A (2015-present), the European Physics Journal Applied Metamaterials (2015-present), the Journal Advances in Mathematical Physics (2018-present) and the Journal Applied Sciences: Acoustics Section (2018-present). He has been since 2017 a Joint Executive Editor of the Metamaterials book series (ISTE/Wiley Publishers), which also publishes peer-reviewed Open Access research articles.
