Emilio Martínez Pañeda is an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) & 1851 Research Fellow at Imperial College London. Before, he was a Research Fellow in Norman Fleck’s group at the University of Cambridge. Emilio joined Cambridge from the Technical University of Denmark, where he was an H.C. Ørsted Fellow, working with Christian Niordson. 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 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.
