Biographical Sketch

Dr. Martin Kroon is 33 years old and was born in the south of Sweden. After his military service he started his undergraduate studies in Lund, Sweden, in 1994. 1999 he began his PhD studies, and in 2003 he presented his thesis, which was on brittle fracture in steel. Then Dr. Kroon studied theology for some years before he got the position as a post-doc at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He is now Assistant Professor at KTH Solid Mechanics in Stockholm. In his spare time he likes to go kayaking and wander in nature.
