Gertraud Medicus is a geotechnical engineer with research interest in computational soil mechanics. Her research focuses on constitutive models of soils in particular on the models hypoplasticity and barodesy. Gertraud aims to contribute to the understanding of soil modelling by developing, applying and teaching constitutive models. Her investigations are related to asymptotic soil behaviour, stress-dilatancy relations, plane-strain conditions, (non)coaxiality, small-strain/cyclic loading approaches and strength reduction analyses.

Current position: Elise-Richter position, PI of the research grant of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) P V918
