Jordi Marcé-Nogué is a post-doc researcher in de Centrum für Naturkunde of the University of Hamburg (UHH) since 2015. He obtained a Bachelor degree of Industrial Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and a PhD from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in 2009. His research focuses on computational mechanics and, especially, on computational biomechanics in which he has developed an important task in the study of bony structures of current and fossil vertebrates in the field of palaeobiology (mammals, amphibian, reptile, etc.) and has developed comparative methodologies in the post-process of Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Previously, he has also worked in computational models for orthodontic studies, fluid-structure interaction, hemodynamic models and models for civil engineering structures of concrete, masonry, steel or wood. He published several works in indexed international scientific journals.
He started as a research fellow in the Departament de Resistència de Materials I Estructures a l’Enginyeria (UPC) and from 2006 to 2015 he taught in Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria i Aeronàutica de Terrassa (UPC) being a researcher at the group Laboratory for the Innovation of Structures and Materials (LITEM). He also have taught in master and pos-graduate courses of Fundación Politècnica de Catalunya, Universidad Autònoma de Chiapas (México) and Universidad Juárez del Estado de Durango (México) and doctoral courses in Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland). He has conducted research assignments in the field of computational biomechanics at the University of Hamburg, Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).
He has also published and participated in teaching innovation projects and given lectures on scientific communication and new technologies. He has participated in numerous competitive research projects and in projects with companies. He has been awarded with “12è Premi a la Qualitat en la Docència Universitària (awarded by the Social counsil of the Universitat Politècnica per Catalunya) and the award Jaume Vicens Vives (awarded by the Department of Innovation, Universities and Business of the Generalitat of Catalonia) for the work “Video Streaming: Integration of low cost teaching videos to Atenea as a new tool for ‘ teaching-learning for the engineering student”.
