Biography

Emilio Martínez Pañeda is an Associate Professor in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. Prior to joining Oxford, he was a Reader (Associate Professor) at Imperial College London, where he led an interdisciplinary research group from 2019 to 2023 (2019: Lecturer, 2021: Senior Lecturer, 2023: Reader). Before joining Imperial, he was an 1851 Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. Prof Emilio Martínez-Pañeda’s research spans a wide range of challenges lying at the interface between mechanics and other disciplines, such as materials science, geology, chemistry, biology, and structural engineering. He currently holds an ERC Starting Grant (ResistHfracture) and a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship (NEWPHASE).

Emilio was born in Oviedo (Spain). He earned a 5 year MEng. degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Oviedo in 2011 and an MSc degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Granada in October 2012. During his MSc studies, Martínez Pañeda conducted research in the mechanics of functionally graded materials under the supervision of Prof. Rafael Gallego. In the year 2013, he started his PhD studies and was awarded a predoctoral fellowship by the University of Oviedo (ranked 2nd in Engineering). During his PhD, Martínez Pañeda conducted research under the supervision of Prof. Covadonga Betegón in the fields of mechanics of materials and computational solid mechanics, with particular emphasis on the modelling of size effects in metal plasticity and fracture and damage assessment. Emilio spent a large part of his PhD studies abroad, holding visiting scholar positions at the Technical University of Denmark (host: C. Niordson), the University of Luxembourg (host: S. Bordas), the University of California Santa Barbara (host: R. McMeeking) and the University of Cambridge (host: N. Fleck). In June 2016 he successfully defended his PhD thesis achieving the highest mark (Summa Cum Laude) and was selected in the competitive H.C. Ørsted program (success rate below 10%). His PhD Thesis was later distinguished with the Extraordinary Doctoral Prize, being the best PhD Thesis in Engineering (ranked 1st out of 99 Theses). After a year working as H.C. Ørsted Fellow at the Technical University of Denmark, he moved in September 2017 to the University of Cambridge to work under the supervision of Profs. Norman Fleck and Vikram Deshpande. In the year 2018, he was awarded 3 very competitive grants, the Marie Curie Fellowship, the 1851 Research Fellowship by the Royal Commission for the 1851 Exhibition and a Junior Research Fellowship from Wolfson College Cambridge. In 2019, Martínez Pañeda was appointed a Lecturer (US Assistant Professor) in Mechanics of Materials at Imperial College London. Less than two years later, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer (US Associate Professor with tenure) and in 2023 he was promoted to Reader. In the summer of 2023, Martínez Pañeda joined the University of Oxford as an Associate Professor of Engineering Sciences. He has been the PI on over £4.5M of funding in the past five years (ERC, UKRI) and his work has been recognised through multiple awards, including the 2021 UK Young Engineer of the Year (Royal Academy of Engineering), the 2022 Imperial College President’s Medal for Excellence in Research (Early Career), SEMNI’s Simo Prize, Spain’s Royal Academy of Engineering Young Investigator Medal and the 2021 Gustavo Colonnetti Medal (RILEM).
