Background and activities

Julia Glaum is Associate Professor in the FACET group in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. She is heading the research area “Active Biomedical Ceramics”. Her current research focuses on the development of functional materials suitable for in vivo sensors, actuators and cell stimulating scaffolds. Current projects in her group are concerned with metal-ceramic interfaces, ceramic-liquid interfaces, piezoelectric coatings and the impact of clinical proceedures on material properties.

Brief CV:

Julia Glaum received her diploma in Physics from the Justus Liebig Universität Gießen, Germany in 2006. She conducted her PhD at the Department of Materials and Earth Science of the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany working on aging and fatigue phenomena in lead-based ferroelectric ceramics. Her work was part of the Collaborative Research Center 595 funded by the German Research Foundation.

For her first Postdoc she moved to UNSW Australia holding a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) for a research project on electric fatigue of ferroelectric and relaxor-based ceramics.

In 2015, she was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship by the European Commission, directing her research towards functional biomedical materials. With this fellowship she moved to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway in 2015. In 2018, she was promoted to Associate Professor, in 2022 to Professor.
