Dr Michel Lebon, a CONNECT research fellow at Trinity College Dublin, has joined Nexalus, a CONNECT spin-out company, as the Lead Prototype Engineer.

Nexalus announced the news below:

“…In 2016 Michel completed a PhD in Bubble Dynamics in Microgravity at the Toulouse Institute of Fluid Mechanics in France. He then travelled to Maryland in the USA as a Postdoc research fellow where he researched Flow Boiling Experimentation in Microgravity which was funded by NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

In 2018 his initial journey with Nexalus began as Michel came on board as an Enterprise Ireland & Trinity College Dublin co-funded researcher. A year later he took up the role of CONNECT Centre & Nexalus co-funded researcher.

We are thrilled to now have him as a full-time member of the Nexalus team as our Lead Prototype Engineer. In this role, Michel works across areas such as product development, prototyping, testing and CFD”
