Krystel RENARD, Ph.D.


Patent Engineer

After receiving her PhD from the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium) for her research concerning the mechanical properties of TWIP (twinning-induced plasticity) steels, Dr. Renard pursued research on the thermoelectric properties of FeVAl alloys as a JSPS Fellow at the Nagoya Institute of Technology. After work at a patent law firm in Tokyo, Dr. Renard joined our office in April 2018.
