Maximilian Wollner was born in Hof, Germany, in 1995. After secondary education, he began studying mechanical engineering at TU Dresden in 2014. There he developed an interest in applied mechanics and mathematical modeling, which led him to specialize in simulation methods in mechanical engineering. During his studies he worked experimentally and theoretically on magnetorheological elastomers as a student research assistant at the Chair of Computational and Experimental Solid Mechanics. In 2019, he visited the Institute of Biomechanics in Graz for an Erasmus+ internship, where he wrote his diploma thesis on the constitutive modeling of vascular smooth muscle cells.
After a short break, he returned to Graz in November 2021 to start his dissertation under the supervision of Professor Gerhard A. Holzapfel.
