Dr.-Ing. Marta Gil Pérez appointed as Assistant Professor

February 6, 2024

in Sustainable Structural Design at the Structural Engineering and Design Unit, Eindhoven University of Technology

We are glad to announce the promotion of our colleague Marta as Assistant Professor at TU/e from February 2024. Marta joined ITKE as a Research Associate in 2017 and was part of the structural team in projects such as the BUGA Fibre Pavilion, Maison Fibre, and the LivMatS Pavilion. After obtaining her PhD in 2022 she became the Research Group Leader of the fibre composites team. Her research at ITKE comprised the development of engineering methods to prove the structural integrity and safety of non-standard building systems, using the additive manufacturing technique of coreless filament-wound (CFW) fibre-polymer composite structures as a case study. Her methods and design workflow utilized a multi-disciplinary, digital-physical multi-scale approach combining structural testing and simulation.

Her future research as an Assistant Professor primarily lies in the area of structural design and digital technologies with a strong motivation for bio-based materials, circularity, and co-design towards the realization of more sustainable structures.

We thank Marta for her important contributions to research and teaching at ITKE, we wish her all the best for her future endeavors and hope to stay in touch.
