I am a researcher in mechanics. My PhD topic belongs to the finite element technology. I studied incompatible (non-standard) finite elements that can be applied to large deformation simulations, such as metal in plasticity, or rubber in elasticity. I have used FORTRAN and MATLAB for coding my PhD research.

After obtaining my PhD at the University of Liege (Belgium), I worked on a project in biomechanics at Aachen University of Applied Sciences (Germany). This project concentrated on material models of soft tissues, such as for tubular organs. For this work, I concentrated in nonlinear material (soft tissues) experiment, finite element coding and simulations. Growth and remodeling simulations are also concerned.

Since September 2011, I have been a researcher at the Max Planck Institute. My current research topics concern hard tissues (bones, teeth). In cooperation with my anthropologist colleagues, I apply the finite element method to analyse functions of hard tissues during the evolutionary history of primates and hominins.
