Oliver Giraldo-Londoño is an Assistant Professor and James W. and Joan M. O’Neill Faculty Scholar in Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Missouri. He is currently serving as the director of research for the 3D Printing Research & Experiences Lab to promote 3D printing research and development. His research focuses on computational mechanics, particularly on the fields of topology optimization and computational fracture mechanics. His work has been published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A, Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization, among others. Dr. Giraldo-Londoño has worked in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories and Siemens Corporate technology to develop frameworks for topology optimization of structures subjected to general dynamic loading and thermomechanical loading, respectively. He has received several awards including the Young Researcher Award from COLCIENCIAS (the Colombian equivalent to the National Science Foundation) and the Emilio Robledo Award, awarded by the Colombian Society of Engineers.
