Gael graduated in 2016 with a PhD from the University of Cambridge where he investigated the use of powder metallurgy for rolling bearings. He then joined Aubert & Duval, one of Europe’s main producers of high-performance alloys. There, he worked on improving the quality of metal powders as well as the efficiency of the production process. In 2018, he moved back to the UK to join OxMet Technologies (now part of Alloyed), a spin-off company of the University of Oxford, specialised in the computational development of new alloys. There, he leads the Rapid Alloy Research Centre, a laboratory focused on accelerating Alloyed’s technologies in the field of alloys and additive manufacturing.
