PhD in Engineering Sciences
Post-doctoral researcher
Department of Civil Engineering
University of Santiago, Chile



Carlos Felipe Guzmán is a post-doctoral researcher in computational mechanics at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Santiago. He studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Concepción, graduating in March 2011. Between 2010 and 2012, he pursued a Master in Engineering Sciences with mention in Mechanical Engineering in the same university, under the supervision of Prof. Paulo Flores. In 2011, he started a PhD in Engineering Sciences at the University of Liége under the supervision of Dr. Ing. Anne Marie Habraken. The main goal was to analyze the damage mechanism in the single point incremental forming process leading to material failure. He considers himself a rigorous, committed and teamwork enthusiast. Please feel free to contact him for collaboration!
