Professor Marius Milatz is the new head of the Institute for Geomechanics and Geotechnics!

On April 1, 2024, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marius Milatz takes over the management of the IGG-TUBS and replaces Prof. Dr.-Ing. after almost 22 years. Joachim Stahlmann, who is retiring. Marius Milatz studied civil engineering and environmental technology at the Technical University of Hamburg (TUHH), completing his studies with a diploma in 2011. In 2016 he received his doctorate at the Institute for Geotechnics and Construction Management at the TUHH on the topic “Investigations into the influence of capillarity on the hydraulic-mechanical behavior of granular base layers for traffic routes”. Marius Milatz was then a postdoctoral researcher until 2023, and from 2019 in a DFG-funded graduate school at the TUHH. At the end of 2022, he successfully completed his habilitation on the topic “Investment of capillary effects on the grain scale by means of in situ experiments, imaging and numerical simulations” with Venia legendi in the field of soil mechanics. On March 1, 2024, he was appointed university professor at the TU Braunschweig and has since headed the Institute for Geomechanics and Geotechnics.
