Biography

Emilio Martínez Pañeda is an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) in Civil Engineering Materials at Imperial College London. Before, he worked as Research Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Micromechanics (University of Cambridge), led by Profs. Norman Fleck and Vikram Deshpande. He joined the University of Cambridge from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where he worked with Prof. Christian Niordson as an H.C. Ørsted Fellow. Martínez Pañeda’s main research interests lie in the field of mechanics of materials, particularly in plasticity, fracture mechanics, coupled diffusion-deformation theories, and mechanism-based models for damage. He currently holds a Junior Research Fellowship at Wolfson College Cambridge and an 1851 Research Fellowship (Brunel award) from the Royal Commission for the 1851 Exhibition.

Emilio was born in 1987, in Oviedo (Spain). He earned a 5 year BEng. & 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 in Civil Engineering Materials at Imperial College London. Martínez Pañeda is currently a member of the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS), the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), the European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH) and the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). He has delivered numerous invited talks and seminars at various international conferences and research institutions. His work on the mechanics of solids has been disseminated in numerous journal publications and has been recognized through several awards.
