Mathias Kersemans
Field Of Expertise: Mechanics of Materials and Structures

Mathias Kersemans obtained in 2014 a PhD in Engineering Physics from Ghent University on the topic of Ultrasonic characterization of composite materials. He is currently Associate Professor in the Mechanics of Materials and Structures research group (UGent-MMS) at Ghent University, where he is leading the research on non-destructive testing and structural health monitoring of advanced light-weight materials. His research team focuses on the development of novel and sensitive (nonlinear) inspection techniques for accurate monitoring and assessing the damage state in complex materials. This includes design of experimental methodology, optimization of excitation and acquisition strategy, advanced signal and image processing, prognostic damage evolution and estimation of remaining useful lifetime. He is author of more than 80 publications in SCI Web of Science.
