Research Fellow, Faculty of Engineering
Mathias Tolomeo holds a BSc in Civil Engineering from Politecnico di Bari (Italy) and a MSc in Geomechanics, Civil Engineering and Risks from Université Grenoble Alpes (France). He then completed a PhD in Geomechanics at Université Grenoble Alpes, working on the transmission of interparticle contact forces in granular materials, and the estimation of such forces from experiments.
Mathias' research focuses on the mechanics of granular materials, in particular on their numerical modelling through the Discrete Element Method. He currently works on the DEM modelling of railway ballast.
