About the speaker
Holger Steeb is a professor of Continuum Mechanics at the Institute of Mechanics and SC SimTech at the University of Stuttgart. His research focuses on multi-scale and multi-phase methods for materials with inherent microstructure, such as porous media. Imaging characterization methods (e.g. high-resolution X-ray tomography or microfluidics), which dissolve the pore space in porous materials and represent small-scale physical processes, form the basis for the development of powerful scale-bridging simulation methods in his group. Holger Steeb applies the developed experimental characterization methods and numerical simulation techniques to various problems in the geosciences, such as deep geothermal energy.
