Dayou Ma, born in 1993, received his master degree from Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU, China) in 2018 and titled PhD cum laude in Mechanical engineering from Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI, Italy) in 2021. He joined DyMaLab of Ghent University (UGENT, Belgium) as a visiting PhD in 2020. He is currently an Assistant Professor (RTDa) at Department of Mechanical Engineering, Politecnico di Milano. His research covers both numerical and experimental investigations, including but not limited to mechanical responses and fracture behaviours of materials under extreme conditions as well as multifunctional applications of composite materials.
The current focuses of his research are dynamic response of polymers, (nano)composites and metallic materials under impact loading conditions, multi-scale modelling strategies, stochastic modelling with material uncertainties considered, novel numerical approaches about damage and fracture process of materials, and the multifunctional modelling of (nano)composites.
He is the co-author of many publications in international journals and the international conference proceedings.
