Édouard Kaminski est professeur de géophysique à l’institut de physique du globe de Paris (IPGP) - Université de Paris. Spécialisé en mécanique des fluides géologiques, il étudie la dynamique internes des planètes et le fonctionnement des volcans. Il a assuré de 2010 à 2016 les fonctions de directeur adjoint de l’IPGP. Depuis octobre 2019, il est vice-président Recherche de l‘Université de Paris. Il assure la coordination du projet IdEx de l’université depuis 2018..


The Institute of Earth Physics of Paris is a research and educational institution
Its mission is to achieve research and provide education in the fields of geosciences but the institute is also in charge of monitoring the natural phenomena. The institute conducts research in all the fields of studies of the solid Earth (geophysics, geochemistry, and quantitative geology) by combining observations on land and at sea, from laboratory analysis to the construction of conceptual, analogical and numerical models.
Current developments direct towards new and promising fields such as terrestrial materials under extreme conditions, the primitive Earth and its first billion years, the interfaces between solid ground and fluid envelopes, the interactions between Earth and life sciences.
The study of the natural risks includes the responsibility for the monitoring of the three French active volcanoes ("La Soufrière" of Guadeloupe - Mount "Pelée" - in Martinique and the et "Le Piton de la Fournaise" on Reunion Island ), the worldwide network of seismological stations GEOSCOPE, and a major contribution to the worldwide network of magnetic observatories INTERMAGNET.
The implication of IPGP teams following the two major earthquakes of Sumatra in 2004 and Pakistan in 2005 revealed their importance.
It is necessary to underline the recent development of partnerships with the industry, such as the program on geological storage of CO2 or the conception of spatial missions.
To accomplish his teaching assignment, IPGP was committed, together with Denis Diderot University, to implement the LMD program, by taking the responsibility of the courses for master and doctorate.


France Université Numérique is the broadcaster of the online courses of French higher education institutions and their partners.

It operates several platforms of diffusion, of which the best known, FUN MOOC, is the first French-speaking academic platform worldwide. Thanks to many partner institutions, this platform offers a vast catalog of courses enriched daily with various themes and current events.
