Mathieu Hubert Mathieu Hubert received his MSc. degree in Materials Chemistry from the University of Rennes 1, France, in 2009 and a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Rennes 1 and the University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ, USA) in 2012. His graduate research work was primarily on chalcogenide glass science, focused on the study and development of new glasses and glass-ceramics systems for infrared applications, as well as development of innovative, cheaper synthesis methods for this type of glasses. He joined in 2013 the independent glass research and technology company CelSian Glass & Solar in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, as process and materials technologist. His areas of research combine glass science and glass technology, as parts of projects for industrial glass companies worldwide, either in bilateral projects or in consortiums via the Glass Trend association. These research projects cover a large range of topics including batch optimization, glass melting, redox chemistry, fining and foaming of glass melts, strategies for increased energy efficiency and reduction of emissions, or development of sensors for better process control. M. Hubert is also concerned and active in education on glass, with a drive to support interactions between industry and academia. He joined in 2014 CelSian?s teacher team, giving regularly courses on glass technology to employees of the industry worldwide, and volunteers in many outreach and educational programs on glass and materials science.
