Scientific work of the leading scientist, his/her main scientific achievements:
The leading scientist's research is oriented principally towards continuum mechanics. In particular he is experienced in mechanics of bio-materials, and also smart materials. He moreover studied with deep interest generalized continuum theories. Along his academic history
he has also approached vibration and motion control, wave propagation, phase transition and surface phenomena. In addition, the leading scientist is very experienced in applied functional analysis and his studies have greatly developed homogenization methods.
