Humboldt Research Awardee Ricardo Lebensohn from Los Alamos National Laboratory hosted by MPIE
Dr. Lebensohn is an international leader in the Mechanics of Materials. Since the 90s he has pioneered the field of multiscale modelling of plasticity of crystalline materials, developing sophisticated theories and efficient numerical methods to connect the behavior of single crystals and polycrystalline aggregates and to incorporate microstructural information in multiscale simulations of materials deforming under complex mechanical solicitations. These theories and the simulation tools carefully crafted by Lebensohn are nowadays used by researchers worldwide, both for academic research and industrial applications and have impacted a very broad field of research and technological applications.
Dr. Lebensohn is hosted by Professor Dierk Raabe at the Max-Planck Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf and by Professor Peter Gumbsch at the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) and the Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoffmechanik in Freiburg
