NRN AEM Researcher’s PhD Thesis Recognised as Best in Europe by ECCOMAS

Dr Rogelio Ortigosa Martinez of Swansea University whose research in to Computational Mechanics has won him the acclaimed ECCOMAS award for best European PhD thesis in his field highlights the innovative research that is carried out as part of the NRN AEM.

An award difficult to achieve it is the maximum recognition scientists in Europe hope to gain within the computational mechanical field. 

Research Assistant to NRN project, NRN106, Dr Martinez', thesis, focused on the development of well-posed constitutive models for nonlinear electro-elasticity in scenarios characterised by extreme deformations and extreme electric fields. 

Rogelio's, supervisor, Professor Antonio J Gil, who he credits with providing excellent guidance throughout this thesis, allowing him to develop both personally and professionally has similarly gained great success recently; having been awarded with Professorship whilst being part of the NRN AEM

Both a success in showcasing the engineering ingenuity and innovative research that is carried out as part of this network
