Dr. Václav Sebera is a researcher at the InnoRenew CoE.
He is focusing on mechanics of wood and wood-based composites at various levels of observation. Within this field, he employs optical techniques based on Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and numerical approaches utilizing Finite Element Method (FEM). He further focuses on tree biomechanics investigating stability of trees and works on the development of inspection techniques.
In 2009 he received a Fulbright scholarship for a research project at Oregon State University (USA). Four years later he earned his Ph.D. at Mendel University in Brno (Czech Republic) where he was employed as Research assistant since then. He also works as a external lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Rosenheim (Germany).
