Johannes Gerstmayr started his career in 1998 as a researcher in the special research area SFB13 on Numerical and Symbolical Mathematics within the project Structural Dynamics of Elasto-Plastic Multibody Systems and received his doctoral degree at the Johannes Kepler University Linz in 2001. After several research visits to UIC Chicago, IST Lisbon and University Duisburg-Essen with research focus on computational methods for flexible multibody systems, he finished his habilitation in Technical Mechanics in 2007. After a short research visit to Lappeenranta University of Technology in 2007 he joined the Linz Center of Mechatronics as a key researcher and became leader of the business unit Dynamics and Control. In 2013 he received the offer for the chair of Machine Elements and Design at the newly funded Department of Mechatronics at the University of Innsbruck, which he joined in 2014. He received the Wilhelm Macke-Prize in 2005, the Upper Austrian Innovation Award in 2013 and several best paper awards. He is member of the editorial board of Multibody System Dynamics and Acta Mechanica and Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics. He served as a reviewer for more than 20 scientific journals and co-authored more than 50 papers in scientific journals, more than 120 papers in book chapters and proceedings and 6 patents.
