SEM Awards: M. Hetényi

Christian Franck is the Bjorn Borgen Professor in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His work specializes in cellular biomechanics and new experimental mechanics techniques at the micro and nanoscale, including unique three-dimensional full-field imaging capabilities based on multiphoton and confocal microscopy and digital volume correlation. Current application areas of these three-dimensional microscopy techniques include understanding the 3D deformation behavior of neurons in the brain during traumatic brain injuries, and the role of non-linear material deformations in soft matter.
