My family and myself
After 15 years in Clermont, Bertrand recently moved to Aix-Marseille Universite to take a professor position at CEREGE, one of the biggest labs in Earth Sciences in France. AMU is the largest university in France. He is joining the team of Pierre Rochette in planetology, and there are a couple top-notch TEMs in the area. While in Clermont, they recently got a new EBSD-EDS system on the SEM. Bertrand believes EBSD is a fantastic technique, especially for the study of the mesostructures he has been working on for so long, quite complementary to the TEM. He plans to keep working in Clermont on "his" instrument (he says he did spend some energy on this project, and is very proud of the first results), until he can install a new one in Aix-Marseille.
The family will follow him next year. William (16) will be finishing high school this year (2013). He, Anne-Gaelle (14), and Thomas (6) are all doing well. His wife Florence is now working as a consultant, taking advantage of her international experience as Chair of the Wikimedia foundation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence_Devouard).
