Peter Linde works as a research engineer in the area of aircraft integration and architecture at Airbus operations GmbH in Hamburg since 2002. Originally working with structural analysis, with focus on new materials, he has extended the work towards multifunctional materials, with focus on composites. Since ten years he has collaborated with Chalmers within the MAAXIMUS project, dealing with damage models for new composites. Since 2017 he works as a topic manager for the Clean Sky project SORCERER jointly with Chalmers, dealing with structurally integrated energy storage. These activities lead up to the adjunct professorship at Chalmers, working closely with Leif Asp. In this new function Peter will focus on innovative multifunctional lightweight technologies, such as integrated energy storage, thin ply composites, and applications of graphene in airframe structures.
