Personal profile

Research profile

With my expertise in multiscale multiphysics computational mechanics, the objective of my research is to develop predictive numerical models that improve understanding of mechanical processes. I aim to reduce the amount of destructive material characterisation tests or field measurements used by default. I am particularly interested in characterising the role of internal structure on the behaviour of larger systems.

I am the lead coordinator of Advanced Computational Mechanics, elective course for the 2nd year of the Master in Civil Engineering.

Academic background

Dr. M. Lesueur obtained his PhD in geomechanics in 2020 from the University of New South Wales jointly with Duke University, for which he received the Mineral and Rock Physics Graduate Research Award of the American Geophysical Union. After two postdoctorate positions in hydrogeology at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of Western Australia, he joined TU Delft in 2022 as an assistant professor in the group of Computational Mechanics, in Civil Engineering and Geosciences.
