Dr

Christian Brandl

 

Christian Brandl completed his Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne EPFL and the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland), followed by a post-doc in the Theoretical Division at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (USA). Prior his position at the University of Melbourne, he headed a research group “Computational Nanomechanics of Materials” at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany).

His research focuses on predictive atomistic simulation approaches to enable rational materials design. With his expertise on defects (e.g. dislocations, interfaces) in materials, he investigates defect-dominated properties (i.e. ; strength, reliability, stability) in advanced engineering materials: ranging from metallic nanomaterials (i.e. nanocrystalline metals, nanoparticle, nanolaminates, nanowires), to refractory metals/high entropy alloys.

Additional Information

Prior his appointment at The University of Melbourne he held two grants from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation): "Interaction of interstitial solid-solution impurities and dislocation motion in body-centered cubic metals" (2016-2019), "Identification of the intrinsic deformation mechanisms of single phase body-centered cubic high entropy alloys" (2017-) within the Priority Programme SPP 2006: Compositionally Complex Alloys - High Entropy Alloys (CCA - HEA); and from the Vector Foundation (Germany) "Self-organized point defect arrays in diamond."
