Ricardo Lebensohn receives Humboldt Research Award


The Humboldt Research Award is granted 'in recognition of a researcher's entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in future'. In the case of Dr. Lebensohn: '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, which are nowadays used by researchers worldwide, both for academic research and industrial applications'. Dr. Lebensohn is hosted in Germany by Professor Dierk Raabe at the Max-Planck Institute for Iron Research in Duesseldorf and by Professor Peter Gumbsch at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg.
