Mischa Blaszczyk

Mischa Blaszczyk studied mechanical engineering at Ruhr-University Bochum, where he received his M.Sc. in 2019 with a thesis on the topic of thermodynamic topology optimization with gradient-enhanced regularization for unstructured meshes. After graduation, he continued to stay at Ruhr-University Bochum and started to work as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Klaus Hackl at the Institute of Mechanics of Materials.

His research concentrates on modeling and simulations of electro-mechanic coupled materials and applications in biomechanics, with the focus on coupled wave propagation in bones for the early detection of osteoporosis. Here, he uses a multiscale and multiphase material model to describe bone in a realistic and physiological way. Additionally, he works on the topic of electric and magnetic metamaterials.
