Curriculum Vitae.T.Christian Gasser is Professor of Biomechanics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, as well as Adjunct Professor at University of Southern Denmark, Denmark. He holds a Master of Mechanical Engineering (1997) and a PhD in Civil Engineering (2001), both from Graz University of Technology, Austria. In 2008 Gasser accomplished his Habilitation in Solid Mechanics/Biomechanics at KTH. The development and application of advanced numerical techniques to solve realistic (bio)engineering and clinical problems, is Gasser’s main research objective. Constitutive models for anisotropic finite strain materials have been implemented in all major Finite Element simulation packages, such as ANSYS, ABAQUS, COMSOL, etc, and Gasser’s translational biomechanics research led to A4clinicsRE, commercial biomechanical-based simulation software for clinical decision making. He wrote one book and co-authors 2 PCT patents, 100+ peer-reviewed journal publications and 10+ book chapters. His work led so far to more than 16k Google Scholar citations and an h-index of 52. He is listed as KTH’s most influential researcher in Biomedical Engineering, ranked amongst top 2% worldwide in this field, and in 2022 he was awarded a Humboldt Research Award from Germany. He is Associate Editor of Int. J. for Num. Meth. in Biomed. Engrg, in the editorial board of Mechanics of Soft Materials and a EMMCC member. He is the designated 2024 Odqvist lecturer, a distinction awarded by the Swedish national mechanics committee. He is Principal founder of ARTEC Diagnosis AB as well as VASCOPS GmbH and serves a legal expert for skiing accident reconstruction at Oberlandesgericht, Graz, Austria.

Organization of KTH Solid Mechanics seminar series.Seminars are given over zoom and the presentations aim at showing approaches and examples of solid mechanics research within different fields of applications. We have appr. 50 to 100 attandess per seminar, and please have a look at upcoming seminars and the recordings of previously held seminars.
Organization of the summer school "Computational Tissue Biomechanics".August 18th to 23rd, 2024 our well-attended school series will be given for the third time! The school introduces and applies state-of-the-art tools in the continuum mechanical analysis of biological tissues. It is designed for master students, PhD students and postDocs having a decent background in mechanical engineering and solid mechanics. It integrates theoretical, numerical and experimental concepts towards the description and analysis of a number of biological tissues. The program I will be available soon (pls have a look at the previous program) and more information is given at the website-- be aware that laboratory exercises are limited to a maximum of 60 seats.
