René Moreau is Professor Emeritus at Grenoble-INP, where he has spent his entire career, where he directed the ENSHMG from 1982 to 1987 and where he taught fluid mechanics at all levels. His research has focused on the MHD of liquid metals, including turbulence that tends to become two-dimensional in the presence of a fairly intense magnetic field, as well as various applications to metallurgical processes. He was the founder of the MADYLAM Scientific Interest Group, for "MAgnétoDYnamique des Liquides, Applications à la Métallurgie", which became the EPM group (for Élaboration par Procédés Magnétiques) from Laboratoire Science et Ingénierie des Matériaux et des Procédés (SIMaP). He has been a member of the Académie des sciences since 1993 and a member of the Académie des technologies since 2000. He is the author of numerous publications, a monograph "Magnetohydrodynamics" (Springer, 1990) and a popular science book "L'air et l'eau" (EDP sciences, 2013).
