Marc Geers is full professor in Mechanics of Materials. He obtained his master in Polytechnical Engineering in Belgium in 1987. After 3 years of engineering practice, he started an academic career in 1991 at the civil engineering (and materials) department of the RMA in Brussels. In the period 1992-1996 he combined this position with a PhD at the Eindhoven University of Technology under the supervision of prof. R. de Borst. He was appointed associate professor in Belgium and guest lecturer at the TU/e in 1998. In 2000, he moved to the TU/e in the Netherlands where he was appointed full professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. His present interests are damage mechanics, micromechanics, multi-scale mechanics, generalized continua, crystal plasticity and metal forming
