I first learned of Michigan when I used Professor Wilkes’s and Professor Fogler’s textbooks as an undergraduate. I was able to get a summer internship in Professor Fogler’s research group, that was eventually extended to one year. During that time in the department, I could see how great this university is, how good and hard working the students are, the amazing infrastructure that the University offers, the top-notch research being conducted in different areas, and the tremendous multidisciplinary collaboration all over campus. By the time I applied for graduate school, I had no doubts that I wanted to return to the Michigan to pursue my PhD.

Short Bio

Joaquim R. R. A. Martins is a Professor at the University of Michigan, where he heads the Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Laboratory (MDO Lab) in the Department of Aerospace Engineering. His research involves the development and application of MDO methodologies to the design of aircraft configurations, with a focus on high-fidelity simulations that take advantage of high-performance parallel computing. Before joining the University of Michigan faculty in September 2009, he was an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, where he held the Tier II Canada Research Chair in Multidisciplinary Optimization since 2002. Prof. Martins received his undergraduate degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Imperial College, London, with a British Aerospace Award. He obtained both his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University, where he was awarded the Ballhaus prize for best thesis in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He was a keynote speaker at the International Forum on Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics in 2007, and the Aircraft Structural Design Conference in 2010. He received the Best Paper Award in the AIAA Multidisciplinary Analysis and Optimization Conference twice (2002 and 2006). He is a member of the AIAA MDO Technical Committee and was the technical co-chair for the 2008 AIAA Multidisciplinary Analysis and Optimization Conference. He is an Associate Editor for the AIAA Journal, as well as for Optimization and Engineering.
