In the 11th IAESREC Science Cafe, we invite Prof. Salvatore FEDERICO from the University of Calgary (Canada), currently a visiting professor in the Graduate School of Energy Science. He will talk about how he ended up working in Continuum Mechanics (completely by accident) and how his research has evolved, starting from soft tissue biomechanics and then steering towards more general problems in elasticity, composite materials, porous media, electro-magneto-mechanics, growth and remodeling and geometric mechanics. It will be a excellent opportunity to get a sense of the many possible ways to reach professional success, and that the career path can be joyful! Please freely come and join us!
