Biography

Originally from Belgium, Philippe Geubelle got his M.S. and Ph.D. in Aeronautics at Caltech in 1989 and 1993, respectively. After a year as Postdoctoral Research Associate at Harvard, he joined the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in January 1995, where he is currently Bliss Professor and Head in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, with joint appointments in Mechanical Science and Engineering, in Civil and Environmental Engineering, at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and at the Beckman Institute of Advanced Science and Technology. He is also serving as Director of the Illinois Space Grant Consortium and as President of the National Space Grant Foundation Board.
His research interests pertain to the theoretical and numerical treatment of complex problems in solid mechanics and materials, and, in particular, fracture mechanics, multiscale modeling of heterogeneous materials, composite manufacturing, thin films for MEMS and microelectronics applications and the multidisciplinary computational analysis and design of multifunctional, biomimetic materials. Other research activities include computational aeroelasticity, structural/acoustic coupling and parallel programming.
