StefanStefan received his education in the United States from the Johns Hopkins University (Post-Doc), University of Florida (PhD), and in Europe from Warsaw University of Technology (BS, MS), and RWTH-Aachen in Germany (MS).

Stefan designed safety-related systems in nuclear power plants at Bechtel Power Corporation in the United States, and conducted full-scale, structural impact experiments in Kanazawa, Japan.

Stefan’s work is focused on: multi-physics of metal woven materials; high-resolution structural models for simulations of extreme, dynamic loads; modeling of steel foam material, and development of porous metal components for infrastructure applications.
