Prof. Zavattieri joined Purdue University in 2009. Prof. Zavattieri’s research lies at the interface between solid mechanics and materials engineering. His engineering and scientific curiosity has focused on the fundamental aspects of how Nature uses elegant and efficient ways to make remarkable and more sustainable materials.  He has  contributed to the solid mechanics area by investigating the structure-function relationship of advanced materials at multiple length-scales, combining state-of-the-art computational techniques and experiments to characterize the properties, and enabling the design of new materials. Prof. Zavattieri is the recipient of the NSF CAREER award, the Roy E. & Myrna G. Wansik Research Award, he was a NAE 2014 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium attendee and was recently appointed University Faculty Scholar for the period 2015-2020.

Fellowships:
  1. Fellowship to study at Balseiro Institute. Granted by the National Atomic Energy Commission, Argentina, 1991-1995. The Balseiro Institute is a very prestigious university located in the south of Argentina in which only 30 students are accepted each year after a very selective exam. Each student receives a full fellowship and they are required to previously complete the first two years in engineering or physics program at any university. After 4 years at the institute -6 years in total- the degree of engineer or physicist is recognized as a Masters degree in other international institutions. 

  2. Fellowship to pursue graduate studies at Balseiro Institute.  Granted by the National Atomic Energy Commission, Argentina, Aug-Dec, 1995.

Editorial/Professional:
  1. Associate Editor, International Journal of Experimental and Computational Biomechanics (IJECB) since 2013.
  2. Member of the Editorial Board of the ASTM Journal of Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ACEM) since 2013.
  3. Vice-Chair of the  Biological Systems and Materials Technical Division of   the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM).
  4. Chair of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineering  (SHPE) student paper competition (2012-present)
  5. Faculty member of the Dean’s Engineering Advisory Council, College of Engineering, Purdue University (2013-present)
  6. Materials Engineering Area Coordinator, Lyles School of CIvil Engineering, Purdue University (2009-present)
