My main interests in research and teaching are the science of engineering materials, the physics of metals, and the mechanics of materials, but I very much enjoy interdisciplinary work as well, so that is by no means an exhaustive list. Particular topics I have worked on as a full-time researcher have been to investigate the deformation behavior and processing of bulk metallic glasses, and to develop next-generation digital image correlation methods for full-field measurements of localized deformations.


I am from Belgium originally, but I spent several years in the U.S.A. and in the U.K. as well, before moving back to Belgium and then settling in Finland. For my Academy of Finland Award, a short video was made presenting my story as a fairy tale about "the material boy", which I think is really nice!
