Antoine Jérusalem MSc PhD Diplôme d'Ingénieur

Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Fellow at St Hugh's College


Professor Antoine Jérusalem graduated in 2004 with a double degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace with a Diplôme d’Ingénieur, and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics. In 2007, he obtained his Ph.D. in Computational Mechanics of Materials from MIT, where he stayed as a Postdoctoral Associate for a year.

Antoine was the group leader of the Computational Mechanics of Materials Group in Madrid’s Advanced Studies Institute of Materials (IMDEAMaterials) from 2008 to 2012, and is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Oxford. He is also an Affiliate Researcher in the Mathematical Institute at Oxford and the codirector of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab.

Antoine's research activities focus on computational modelling of many types of materials and structures, ranging from metals to composite materials with a major focus on the multiphysics of neurons and brain and applications in Ultrasound Neuromodulation and TBI. His modelling activities involve the development and use of state-of-the-art advanced numerical techniques. Professor Jérusalem has active collaborations with different institutes and universities around the world.
