Professor Laurence Brassart graduated with a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the Université catholique de Louvain in 2007, and with a PhD in Engineering Sciences from the same university in 2011. She then successively held postdoctoral positions at Harvard University (Fellow of the Belgian American Educational Foundation) and the Université catholique de Louvain (Chargé de Recherche FNRS).
From 2015 to 2019, Laurence was a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University (Melbourne). She joined the Department of Engineering Science in August 2019.
Laurence’s research focuses on the modelling of the mechanical behaviour of materials, with a particular interest in multiscale and multiphysics problems.

Laurence’s research relies primarily on continuum mechanics, thermodynamics and applied mathematics. Her main areas of interest include:
Her current projects focus on solid mechanics problems that involve a strong coupling between mechanics and chemistry (diffusion and chemical reactions in solids), for example in the context of energy-storage materials and soft materials.
I am looking for outstanding graduate students with a keen interests in solid mechanics to join my group. Interested students are invited to email me before applying.
