Séverine Atis is a researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). Her research spans disordered systems, evolutionary dynamics, and out-of-equilibrium phenomena. In 2022 she joined the Pprime Institute, France, where she currently investigates the dynamics of internal gravity waves and soft matter physics. She received her PhD from Sorbonne University, France, for her studies of universal behavior in reaction waves.


Gravity Alters the Dynamics of a Phase Transition

An experiment uncovers the role played by gravity in Ostwald ripening, a spontaneous thermodynamic process responsible for many effects such as the recrystallization of ice cream. Read More »
