Christoph Böhm studied mechanical engineering at Leibniz Universität Hannover. After receiving his M.Sc. in 2019, he joined Prof. Peter Wriggers’ group at the Institute of Continuum Mechanics at Leibniz Universität Hannover, under whose supervision he works on the modelling of micromechanics via the Virtual Element Method (VEM). This includes the formulation of consistent computational homogenisation and multi-scale modelling using virtual elements in the environment of crystalline microstructures.
Further topics are multi-physical (e.g. electro-magneto-mechanical) coupling, anisotropic behaviour or crystal plasticity with large deformations.
Christoph Böhm is also interested in modelling multi-scale problems with model-data driven methods in the context of machine learning.
