Welcome to my Homepage ! My name is Romain Fleury, and I am assistant professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and the director of the Laboratory of Wave Engineering in the Institute for Electrical Engineering. 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.

The Laboratory of Wave Engineering at EPFL is currently seeking motivated and talented Ph.D. students and postdocs to join our cutting edge research laboratory at EPFL in 2017. If you believe to be an exceptional candidate with research interests in wave physics and engineering, electromagnetism, photonics, acoustics, or metamaterials, feel free to contact me.

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