University of Leoben, Austria
Andreas Ludwig studied Physics at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany, obtained his Ph.D. in 1992 at the RWTH Aachen, Germany and a habilitation on Material Physics in 1999 also at the RWTH Aachen. In 1993/1994 he was scholar of the German Science Foundation at EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2003 he became full Professor and head of the chair of ‘Simulation and Modelling of Metallurgical Processes’, Department Metallurgy, Montanuniversity Leoben, Austria. From 2009 to 2021, he was board member auf the Austrian Committee of the International Institute for Applied System Analysis in Laxenburg, Austria. Since 2014, he acts as board member of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) responsible for ‘Engineering Technology’ and now ‘Material Science’. Andreas published over 200 peer-reviewed journal papers most in the field of ‘modelling solidification at an industrial length scale’. The database SCOPUS reveals that Andreas is the world-leading scientist with regards of publications on macrosegregation (since Spring 2013). In the last years, his focus also comprises magnetohydrodynamics in metal processing, as well as peritectic solidification under microgravity conditions.
