Welcome to my Homepage ! My name is Romain Fleury, and I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Langevin Institute, in the School of Physics and Chemistry (ESPCI), Paris, France. My research interests span a variety of topics in the field of wave physics and engineering, with an emphasis on artificially structured materials and surfaces with electromagnetic, acoustic or electronic properties unavailable in nature.

A complete list of my scientific publications can be found here.
