I am a PhD student on the field of Solid Mechanics, currently working with thin-walled carbon fiber structures developing semi-analytical models to predict instability loads. I am working for the european project DESICOS (www.desicos.eu).
I graduated in Material Engineering and later did my master in Aerospace Engineering, developing an optimization process for carbon fiber wings using genetic algorithms.
I am brazilian, currently living in Germany... both reasons why you may see traces of my bad english :)

Just to relax, this is an amazing video..
