Biography

Laurence Brassart is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University. Her general field of interest is the development of original theoretical and computational models to investigate the mechanical and functional behavior of materials. Areas of interest include micromechanics (e.g. homogenization theory) and continuum thermomechanics and kinetics (including mass transport and chemical reaction in solids) with applications to tranditional engineering materials (e.g. alloys and composites), soft materials and energy storage materials.

Laurence Brassart graduated from the University of Louvain (UCL, Belgium) with a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering in 2007, and received her PhD from the same university in 2011. Her PhD work focused on the development of novel micromechanical methods based on homogenization theory to predict the effective behavior of inelastic composites. She then moved to Harvard University as a postdoctoral fellow to work on new problems of solid mechanics involving coupled deformation and mass transport in solids, with applications to Li-ion batteries and soft materials. After that she went back to UCL as a Research Associate mandated by the National Fund for Scientific Research of Belgium (FNRS). She joined Monash University in August 2015.
