- Joaquín Navarro-Zafra is a PhD Student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Sheffield. He was awarded a first class 5-year-degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Castilla-La Mancha in 2013. In 2011 he received a scholarship for studying in Italy during one year in the Università degli studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia. In June 2013 he joined the University of Sheffield. Joaquín was Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) of Mechanics of Deformable Solids (Autumn 2013 and 2014), MEC130- SolidWorks (academic Year 2013/2014 and 2014/2015) and MEC215- Design of Engineering Structures and Components(Spring 2014) in the University of Sheffield.

 

- His specific areas of interest include computational damage mechanics of composites and eXtended Finite Element Methods (XFEM).
