Prof. Dr. Christoph Eberl , Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM will speak at the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, which takes place on 1 February 2017 at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.
About Prof. Dr. Christoph Eberl
Chris Eberl received his Diplom-Engineering (Master equiv.) and PhD degree in Materials Science from the University of Stuttgart in 2001 and 2004, respectively. During his doctoral thesis he worked at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research together with Industry partners to understand fatigue at GHz frequencies in metal thin films. Between 2005 and 2007, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Mechanical Engineering department of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Baltimore, USA. He still retains his formal relationship with JHU as visiting scientist. From 2007 to 2012, Chris Eberl lead the independent research group ‘Microreliability’ at the IAM-WBM of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, supported by the German Science Foundation (DFG). Since 2012, Chris Eberl has been leading a group at the Fraunhofer Institute for Meso and Micromechanics in Freiburg. In 2014 he accepted a joint appointment between the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg and the Fraunhofer society to become full professor and head of the department for Materials- and Micromechanics at the University Freiburg and Deputy Director at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials.
About Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM
The Fraunhofer IWM is a research and development partner for industry and public contracting bodies concerning the topics of component and systems reliability, safety, durability and functionality. The Fraunhofer IWM’s »mechanics of materials« approach is used to identify weaknesses and defects in materials and components, determine their causes and develop solutions that lead to the safer use of components as well as the development of functional materials and resource efficient manufacturing processes.
