I have been involved in Materials Science for many years, first working for a glass company and then pursuing a career in academia. I have been involved with research (Small Scale Mechanics), teaching and mentoring. I also served as the President of SF2M, a founding member of FEMS, from 2017 to 2019.
How do you feel about taking up the role as FEMS President?
This is a very challenging position with great responsibility as FEMS has taken up a leading role in Materials Science.
In recent decades it has been widely recognized that preventing of failure of engineering structures necessitates involvement of a large amount of expertise and, depending on the application, might require for a multi-disciplinary and multi-scale approach in terms of both, size and time. The series of the International Conference of Engineering Against Failure (ICEAF) aims to provide on a biennial basis a Forum to present relevant scientific and technological achievements and discuss with an audience of international experts.
The scope of the Conference is to attract interdisciplinary work dedicated to the design against and prevention of engineering failure. Works are expected to cover a number of different technological areas including Aeronautics, Construction, Automotive, Bioengineering, Recycling, Manufacturing etc. Read more
