Materials are important, but do we understand them?

Research profile

Tijmen Vermeij, currently a postdoctoral researcher at EMPA in Thun, is a former PhD Candidate in the Mechanics of Materials group at Mechanical Engineering. His PhD project, supervised by Johan Hoefnagels, focused on experimental investigations of micromechanical deformation and damage mechanisms in Dual-Phase Steels. This research was primarily conducted by combining advanced microscopic techniques on micromechanical deformation tests, through which the full chain of deformation and damage events can be tracked. Other research interests involve the development of state-of-the-art Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) and Digital Image Correlation (DIC) methods.

Academic background

Tijmen Vermeij obtained his BSc, MSc degree (Cum Laude) and PhD degree (cum laude) in Mechanical Engineering at TU/e. For his MSc internship, he visited the research group of Prof. Cem Tasan at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, USA for a period of four months. For his MSc final project, he worked on the development of state-of-the-art 3D residuals stress measurements, which resulted in two journal publications and the prize for the best MSc thesis in the year 2018 at the Eindhoven University of Technology. His PhD work focused on the identification of plasticity and damage mechanisms in Dual-Phase steels.

Expertise gerelateerd aan duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstellingen van de VN

In 2015 stemden de VN-lidstaten in met 17 wereldwijde duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstellingen (Sustainable Development Goals, SDG's) om armoede te beëindigen, de planeet te beschermen en voor iedereen welvaart te garanderen. Het werk van deze persoon draagt bij aan de volgende duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstelling(en):

  • SDG 7 – Betaalbare en schone energie
  • SDG 12 – Verantwoordelijke consumptie en productie
