Federico C. Antico is PhD Candidate with a major in mechanics of materials at the school of Civil Engineering of Purdue University. Previously, he obtained his M.Sc.E from the same school and earlier he got his B.S. with a major in light-weigth structures design at the school of Aeronautical Engineering of Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP). While he was at UNLP, first as student and then as a pre-doctoral fellow, Federico served as structural design & testing Engineer in several projects including the microwave radiometer for SAC-D / Aquarius satellite as part of a partnership between CoNAE and NASA (link), and a Six meters ground-based gamma-ray telescope prototype for Cherenkov Telescope Array project (link). Since 2003, Federico has been deeply involved in higher education collaborating as teaching assistant, faculty apprentice, tutor and mentor for several undergraduate courses and programs.

Federico's research interests lie in computational solid mechanics applied to materials and structures design. He is particularly interested in multi-scale analysis techniques that help to develop more sustainable materials. His PhD research focuses on numerical modeling of strain-induced cracking of heterogeneous materials with history-dependent behavior.
