Max Krause M.Sc. received his Master’s degree with specialization on aeronautical engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 2016. Afterwards he started his scientific career at the institute of structural mechanics and lightweight design. He has acquired a profound knowledge in the field of the derivation of structural models for the analytical analysis of highly complex lightweight structures. His research focuses on the optimum design of frame stringer stiffened shell structures of launch vehicles.
