Martim Salgado: Universidade do Porto – Purdue University

(4 months)

Mechanical Engineering

Prior to his research stay in Purdue, Martim will conduct experimental mechanics activities on a solid-state electrolyte combined with polymer-based fiber composites used in solid-state Lithium ion batteries. While at Purdue School of Materials, he hopes to develop numerical simulations that capture the mechanical behavior of these novel material systems.
