His time will be spent at the University of Stuttgart's Institutes of Applied and Structural Mechanics, where he will be hosted by Professors Ekkehard Ramm and Christian Miehe. He and his collaborators will be developing mathematical and numerical methods for multi-scale solid mechanics spanning sub-micron strain gradient theories to macroscopic models. Prof. Garikipati also plans to work with other colleagues in Germany and Europe during his stay abroad.

The objective of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is to strengthen Germany's international cultural relations as well as its potential for efficiency and innovation in science and learning by cross-border and inter-disciplinary collaboration between top-flight researchers. Following in the tradition of the naturalist, world traveler, and all-round scholar Alexander von Humboldt, for the past fifty years, the Foundation has built bridges between highly-qualified German and international scholars for joint research and learning, exchange and intercultural understanding.
