Biographical Sketch

Markus Geith was born in Straubing, Germany in 1986. He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Regensburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany. During his studies he went abroad as intern and research assistant, to the US and to New Zealand. Markus came to the team of the Institute of Biomechanics in Graz in 2016 with the idea to create a new numerical injury model for human arteries. He is working on this project in Regensburg since 2014, and now also in Graz under the direction of Professor Gerhard A. Holzapfel.
