Alejandro Marcos Aragón started working December 1st 2014 as an Assistant Professor in the Precision and Microsystems Engineering department of the Faculty of 3mE at TU Delft. Alejandro was born on November 10th, 1977, in San Juan, Argentina. He obtained the degree of “Ingeniero Civil” from the Universidad Nacional de San Juan in December of 2001. Soon after graduation he worked as a structural engineer in TESS, an engineering consulting studio located in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. In 2004, Alejandro was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to pursue a M.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering in the USA. He obtained a M.Sc. in May 2006 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and immediately started a Ph.D. program under the guidance of Prof. Philippe H. Geubelle on the “Computational design of microvascular biomimetic materials”. He received the Mavis Memorial Scholarship Award in 2009 for academic excellence and research accomplishments. Alejandro obtained his Ph.D. in October 2010 and continued working with his advisor as a post-doctorate researcher on the “computational modeling of heterogeneous materials”. Halfway through this 1-year appointment, Alejandro joined his advisor during sabbatical year in Switzerland. After concluding his duties with UIUC, he joined the Computational Solid Mechanics Laboratory (LSMS) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). There he worked as a post-doctoral researcher developing computational tools f
