PEEE 2023 Invited Speaker

Prof. Jesús Toribio
University of Salamanca, Spain

Biography: Professor Jesús Toribio graduated in Civil Engineering in 1982 and then in Mathematics in 1986. In 1987 he was awarded his PhD in the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and turned into Associate Professor in that Institution. In 1992 he became Full Professor and Head of the Materials Science Department of the University of La Coruña (at the age of 32, thus being the youngest Full Professor in the area of Materials Science in Spain). In 2000 he moved to the University of Salamanca (USAL) where is currently Full Professor of Materials Science & Engineering and Head of the Fracture & Structural Integrity Research Group (FSIRG) of that Institution.
His research work is mainly concerned with fatigue and fracture mechanics, environmentally assisted cracking, stress corrosion cracking and hydrogen embrittlement/degradation/damage of metals and alloys (mainly cold drawn pearlitic steel wires for civil engineering and austenitic stainless steels for nuclear engineering and energy applications), covering theoretical, computational and experimental aspects. He actively participates in International Scientific Conferences, very often being a member of the International Advisory Committee, organising Special Sessions and Symposia, being Session Chairman or specially delivering Plenary/Keynote/Invited Lectures. Professor Dr. Jesús Toribio has published more than 600 scientific papers, most of them in international books and journals.
