Personal statement

Guillermo Idarraga is PhD in the subject of high-performance composite materials with pseudo-ductile behaviour and MEng in the subject of railway lubrication systems and multibody simulations. He has participated in different projects gaining experience in numerical modelling, standard tests and manufacturing methods of composites materials. Currently, he is working on the project “Bionic Adaptive Stretchable Materials for WEC (BASM-WEC)” a project funded by the EPSRC. The aim of this project is to develop an analysis and laboratory testing integrity toolbox to reliably design, analyse, and process the state of the art adaptive stretchable materials and structures applicable to Wave Energy Convertors.
