I have been always attracted by the multidisciplinary work of the mechanical engineering field.
My interests are centered on computational solid mechanics, meshless methods, nonlinear material behaviour, numerical and experimental characterization of metal foam. My recent research efforts have been related to developing a new methodology that combines both discrete element method (DEM) and finite element analysis (FEA) model for study the mechanical properties of metallic foams obtained by using the space holder technique. I have a B. Eng. and a Ph.D degree in Mechanical Engineering.
