Nicolas Geoffroy, Materials Engineer, holds a bachelor’s degree in Engineering (2007) and a Ph. D. in Metallurgical Engineering (2011) from McGill University. He taught at the undergraduate level and through the years, took part in various metallurgical research projects for different industries. He also worked at the École Polytechnique de Montréal and in a consulting engineering firm where he was involved in numerous assignments related to failure analysis and the characterization of alloys, polymers and ceramics.
As a forensic engineer, Nicolas carries out on-site investigations, performs simulations and laboratory testing, analyzes and characterizes macroscopically and microscopically all types of material and prepares expert reports. During his years of experience in the field of materials, Nicolas took part in various projects in the aerospace and extractive sectors amongst others. He conducted laboratory testing and simulations to verify hypotheses on the nature and cause of numerous failures. He developed a specific expertise in the corrosion and cathodic protection fields.
As of today, he has performed over 200 investigations and has been recognized as an expert witness in court.
