Sara Garzon Hernandez BEng DPhil MEng

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


Dr Sara Garzon Hernandez graduated from the University Carlos III of Madrid with a degree in Industrial Technology Engineering (Structures and Machines Mechanics major) in 2014 and with a Master’s in Industrial Engineering in 2016. In 2019, she obtained her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University Carlos III of Madrid.

Sara started her research career in the department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis of University Carlos III of Madrid, where she developed her Ph.D. During this time, she spent 4 months as a visiting student in the Solid Mechanics group at the University of Oxford. Currently, Sara is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.

Sara's research activities focus on continuum mechanics formulations, computational modelling and experimental characterisation of components manufactured by Additive Manufacturing technologies, ranging from metals to polymers.
