Professor Antoine Jérusalem graduated in 2004 with a double degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace with a Diplôme d’Ingénieur, and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics. In 2007, he obtained his Ph.D. in Computational Mechanics of Materials from MIT, where he stayed as a Postdoctoral Associate for a year, additionally working as a private consultant during the same period.
He was the group leader of the Computational Mechanics of Materials Group in Madrid’s Advanced Studies Institute of Materials (IMDEA-Materials) from 2008 to 2012, and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science of the University of Oxford. He is also an Affiliate Researcher in the Mathematical Institute at Oxford and the codirector of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab.
His research activities focus on computational modelling of many types of materials and structures, ranging from nanocrystalline and HCP metals to composite materials with a more recent focus on neurons. His modelling activities involve the development and use of advanced numerical techniques such as massive parallel computation, XFEM, GPU solvers, DG methods, etc. Professor Jérusalem has active collaborations with different institutes and universities around the world.
In 2014 Antoine Jerusalem gave a presentation on The Brain’s Response to Trauma at the World Economic Forum.
