Peter Olsson

Docent at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Dynamics

Present research interests: Re-routing of elastodynamic waves, with applications to e.g. ground wave protection of sensitive infrastructure. Mechanical cloaking. Direct and inverse problems for propagation of mechanical waves in solids and structures.(I have previously been vice president of Chalmers University of Technology, with responsibility for all education at the BSc and MSc levels. After a decade of administration and academic leadership I have with a sigh of relief returned to research and teaching.)
