Joosef Leppänen

Universitetslektor at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering

Joosef Leppänen is Senior Lecturer at the Division of Structural Engineering, researchgroup Concrete Structures, since 2012. He teaches in courses for Master of Science and for BSc in Structural Engineering in concrete structures, steel- and timber structures. In his research Joosef focus on concrete structures subjected to explosive loading. The aim is to increase the common knowledge and spread it out to the society.
