I’m an associate professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University in Denmark. My research interests lie within a broad range of topics in theoretical mechanics, soft condensed matter, and materials modeling. My main focus is to understand how mechanical properties, that an elastic body acquires, arise from a careful design of its internal geometry in addition to its material composition. These questions are relevant to topics such as shape formation in nature, biomechanics, mechanics of materials and structures, controlled design and functionality of thin plates and shells.
