Tobias Kaiser received his M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering with emphasis on continuum mechanics and simulation methods in 2015 from TU Dortmund University, Germany. During his studies he also had the opportunity of spending some time at the computational Solid Mechanics Laboratories at the University of California, Berkeley, in the group of Prof. Panayiotis Papadopoulos.
Since 2015 he has been working as a research assistant at the Institute of Mechanics at TU Dortmund University where he obtained his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Menzel in 2019. His research currently focuses on generalised continuum approaches and on computational multiscale methods for electro-mechanically coupled problems of electrical conductors. This includes, upon others, modelling approaches for fiber-reinforced (nano-)composites and novel approaches to simulate the evolution of material symmetry groups of crystalline materials which undergo finite strain plastic deformations.
