Dr Leif Asp, Chaired professor in Lightweight composite materials and structures at the Department of Industrial and Materials Sciences, Chalmers university of technology, Sweden. Professor Asp’s research is focused on efficient design methodologies for carbon fibre composite aircraft and automotive applications and on development of novel multifunctional composite materials, in particular structural batteries. The research builds on 25 years’ experience in damage tolerance modelling, design and certification methods for aircraft composite structures.
Professor Asp is the current President of the International Committee on Composite Materials (ICCM) and former President of the European Society of Composite Materials (ESCM). Dr Asp is a member of the Editorial board of six international scientific journals, among these Composites Science and Technology. Before joining Chalmers full time in year 2015, Dr Asp had different positions at the Aeronautical Research Institute of Sweden (FFA) and Swerea SICOMP. He also held a position as adjunct professor at Luleå University of Technology since 2004. In year 2014 Dr Asp was elected Fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences – the oldest academy of engineering sciences in the World.
