Martinus van Marum Award

Tom de Geus, who gained his PhD cum laude at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology last year, will be awarded the Martinus van Marum Award for Engineering.

The Martinus van Marum Award is an encouragement award for researchers who have finished their PhD within the last five years, in order to stimulate original research in the field of science and technology. The Award, a prize of 12,500 euros, is awarded by the Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen (Royal Dutch Society of Sciences) and will be awarded during a festive meeting on 16 June.

He defended his PhD thesis, titled ‘From damage to fracture, from micro to macro: a systematic study of ductile fracture in multi-phase microstructures’, May 3, 2016, in the Auditorium building of the university.

The PhD thesis of Tom de Geus is about obtaining insights in the mechanical behavior, especially around fracture, of multi-phase materials. His promotor was professor Marc Geers, professor in Mechanics of Materials. 

PhD awards with the honor of ‘cum laude’ are relatively rare, and an average of five percent of all theses at TU/e are considered for this distinction. To be eligible the PhD work must be of exceptional quality, and must be performed with an exceptional level of autonomy.
