JÖRG SCHRÖDER 
JÖRG SCHRÖDER
Jörg Schröder is a Professor of Mechanics and he was twice Vice-Rector for Research, Junior Academic Stuffand Knowledge Transfer at the University of Duisburg-Essen from. He graduated in Civil Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Holzminden (Germany) in 1988. Then he obtained his Diplom-Ingenieur (U) and his Doctor-Ingenieur from the University of Hannover in 1992 and 1995, respectively. After a Post Doc position in Stuttgart University and completing his Habilitation Theses in 2000, he became Professor of Mechanicsat TU Darmstadt. In 2001, he moved to the University of Duisburg-Essen. He is member of the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz, the Academy of Sciences „acatech“ and Senator of the german science foundation (DFG). In 2020 he became the president of the Society for Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM).
His areas of research interestare computational mechanics, continuum mechanics and constitutive modelling. Some of his work focusses on the computational treatment of polyconvexity and the formulation and implementation of mixed finite elements. Furthermore, methods in multiscale modeling (FE²) have been a focus in the last two decades, especially latest works on the coupling of electro-magneto-mechanical effects as well as simplified microstructural models. Furthermore, he is spokes person of the DFG Priority Programme 1748 (Mixed FEM) and of the DFG Research Unit 1509 (Functional Materials).
