Personal profile

Research profile

Markus Hütter is an Associate Professor in the field of mechanics and thermodynamics of materials and Chair of Multiscale Analysis of Polymer Systems at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His key areas of expertise include mechanical engineering, materials engineering, and materials physics.

Markus carries out research about the mechanical behavior of complex fluids and solids, using nonequilibrium thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, multiscale modeling, and coarse graining. The group’s recent projects are concerned with e.g. anisotropic viscoplastic deformation and microstructure-based modeling of the intrinsic kinectics of aging and deformation of polymer glasses. More generally, the research topics cover structure-property relations, elasto-viscoplasticity of solids, damage mechanics, deformation-induced phase transitions, and kinetic theories for complex fluids and solids.

Academic background

Markus Hütter studied Theoretical Physics at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1999 he received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Materials at the ETH. After a post-doctoral stay at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) he returned to the ETH, where he completed his Habilitation in 2006. He joined the Polymer Technology group of the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2010.


Increasingly complex materials and processes are being developed for high-tech applications. Multiscale modeling helps to disentangle the complexities, thereby facilitating and tailoring these developments.
