Numerical Simulation, Modelization, Mechanical Characterization and Micro-structural Optimization of Industrial Components
Emilio Martínez Pañeda
Emilio Martínez Pañeda is an 1851 Research Fellow and an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) in Infrastructure Materials at Imperial College London. He joined Imperial College after an academic and educational career that started at the University of Oviedo and continued through the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Cambridge.
Martínez Pañeda earned a 5 year B. Eng. & M. Eng. degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Oviedo (Spain) in 2011 and an MSc degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Granada (Spain) in 2012. During his MSc studies, he conducted research in the Solid Mechanics & Structures research group under the supervision of Prof. Rafael Gallego. He subsequently joined the research group SIUMECAMAT to work under the supervision of Prof. Covadonga Betegón after being awarded a predoctoral fellowship by the University of Oviedo. Martínez Pañeda's doctoral work lies within the fields of mechanics of materials and computational solid mechanics, with particular emphasis on the modelization of size effects in metal plasticity and fracture and damage assessment. He defended his PhD thesis in June 2016 (3-year programme), receiving the highest grade (Summa Cum Laude). On the same month, he was awarded an H.C. Ørsted Fellowship (success rate below 10%) and joined the Technical University of Denmark in July 2016. A year later he moved to the University of Cambridge as Research Fellow, to work under the supervision of Profs. Vikram Deshpande and Norman Fleck. After two years in Cambridge, Martínez Pañeda started working as a faculty member at Imperial College, his current position.
Martínez Pañeda has delivered numerous invited talks and seminars in various international conferences and research institutions. He is author or co-author of numerous scientific publications in international refereed journals in the field of solid mechanics. His work on the mechanics of solids has been recognized through several important awards and fellowships.
