Biography

Martin Ostoja-Starzewski did his undergraduate studies (1977) at the Cracow University of Technology, Poland, followed by Master’s (1980) and Ph.D. (1983, Dean’s Honour List) degrees at McGill University, Canada, all in mechanical engineering. His research interests are primarily in (thermo)mechanics of random and fractal media, advanced continuum theories, as well as aerospace, bio- and geo-physical applications. He wrote 180+ journal papers as well as two books: 1. Microstructural Randomness and Scaling in Mechanics of Materials, CRC Press (2007); 2.Thermoelasticity with Finite Wave Speeds, Oxford University Press (2009). He also (co-)edited 14 books/journal special issues and co-organized various meetings. He is/was on editorial boards of many journals, including J. Thermal Stresses, Probabilistic Engineering Mechanics, ASME J. Applied Mechanics, Int. J. Damage Mech., Archive of Applied Mechanics, Acta Mechanica, Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems, and Mechanics Research Communications. He is also co-Editor of the CRC Modern Mechanics and Mathematics Series and Fellow of ASME, AAM, WIF, as well as Assoc. Fellow of AIAA. In the winter of 2012 he was Timoshenko Distinguished Visitor at Stanford. Presently, he is Site co-Director of NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Novel High Voltage/Temperature Materials and Structures.

Research

Martin's work straddles mechanics and transport phenomena in random/multiscale/fractal media, stochastic wave propagation, continuum mechanics and thermodynamics, computational mechanics. His research at Beckman is focused on MRI-based studies of head trauma. This involves challenges in image analysis, rheology of brain tissues, mechanics without separation of scales, wavefront evolutions, and microstructure-based finite elements. Related topics in other composite materials involved polymers, bone, polycrystals, granular and porous media, as well as helices.
