December 06, 2016

Ettore Barbieri is a Lecturer in Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems and joined the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London in May 2013. He holds a 5-year Laurea (Vecchio Ordinamento) degree cum laude in Aerospace Engineering (from the University of Naples Federico II) and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bath.

In 2010, he joined the Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering group at the University of Oxford as a post-doctoral research associate in the group of Prof Nik Petrinic. He developed a new modelling concept (distance-based) for multiple non-planar cracks in 3D, enabling simulation of post-failure behaviour which would be otherwise very difficult or almost impossible with traditional techniques.
