Prof. Arroyo obtained a PhD from Northwestern University under the supervision of Ted Belytschko. He then spent two years as a post-doc at Caltech, working with Michael Ortiz, before joining the UPC in 2004.
His research interests at the intersection between engineering, computational and applied mechanics, mathematical modeling, applied physics, and more recently biophysics and mechanobiology. His work includes modeling and simulation of the nonlinear mechanics of various thin film structures (thin shells graphene, biomembranes, epithelial cell sheets), with a close look at quantitative experiments. He has also worked on methods to upscale molecular simulations in carbon nanostructures, lipid bilayers, and molecules. He has also developed new meshfree methods and applied them to phase-field problems. See http://www.researcherid.com/rid/B-5696-2008 for a list of publications.
Prof. Arroyo has been awarded with a Starting Grant from the European Research Council, and has been distinguished with an Icrea Academia Award. He has also received the O. C. Zienkiewicz Award for Young Scientists in Computational Engineering Sciences (ECCOMAS) and the ASME/BOEING Structures and Materials Award.
