Henri de Cagny investigates the flow of matter in complex materials that are a mixture of a solid and liquid phase. In some cases, the displacements of the two phases can be decoupled. De Cagny studies the relative motion between the two phases, and the consequences that a potential decoupling can have on the mechanical response of the material, including dramatic effects such as negative normal forces and particle migration.
