Institute I: General Materials Properties
Welcoming new simulation group leader: Duancheng Ma
The Simulation group welcomes its new group leader, Dr.-Ing. Duancheng Ma.
He graduated from RWTH-Aachen in 2007, then pursued his doctorate degree advised by Prof. Dierk Raabe at Max-Planck Institute für Eisenforschung GmbH (MPIE) in Düsseldorf. He obtained his Dr.-Ing. title with distinction in 2011. Afterwards he stayed at MPIE as a staff scientist working on and leading a variety of topics and projects. After 3 years industrial experience at Light Metals Technologies Ranshofen GmbH in Austria, in 2019 he joined the group of Simulation and Modelling led by Prof. Erik Bitzek.
Duancheng studied materials science and engineering, specialized in computational materials science. His research interest and focus lie in the development and application of mechanistically based computational methods for the behavior prediction of materials during production and service.
