About me

Guillermo Rus founded this laboratory in 2003 with the goal of continuing the experimental works initiated at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, 2002-03) in ultrasonics for damage characterization using model-based inverse problems, but also to promote new projects, and host and lead invited and permanent researchers in the group.

Guillermo Rus (Resume ESEN) started his research on computational mechanics at the Universidad de Granada (UGR, 1995), where he disputed the PhD thesis on Numerical Methods for Nondestructive Identification of Defects (2001), providing defect search algoritms and sensitivity computation with Boundary Elements. He applied these experimentally at the NDE Lab at MIT (USA) as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow, rendering novel robust quantitative approaches to ultrasonics and impact testing. He started up the NDE Lab as a lecturer at the UGR, 2003, focusing on bioengineering applications such as orthopaedic implants debonding at University College London and Universite Paris VI, or biomaterials at the Nanomaterials Technology Laboratory and Institute of Bioengineering of Alicante, or on advanced materials for civil engineering, such as FRP damage state monitoring with Hanyang University, Seoul, probabilistic problems with Caltech, or prognosis with NASA.
