Biographical Sketch

Malte Rolf-Pissarczyk was born in Osterholz-Scharmbeck, Germany in 1990. He graduated from the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven, Germany, with a double bachelor degree. He then completed his master degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany. During his master studies he worked as a student research assistant at the Institute of Continuum Mechanics, Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany, where he performed research on material models which describe the phenomenon of plasticity, and subsequently on tissue growth. In addition to that, he studied a time-dependent material growth model for hard and soft tissues for his master thesis as a visiting student researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA.

The strong interest on the physiology of the human body has led him to start a Ph.D. in computational biomechanics at the Institute of Biomechanics under the supervision of Professor Gerhard A. Holzapfel.
