New Faculty at Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics
Jaime A. Camelio and Spandan Maiti


Jaime A. Camelio
Jaime A. Camelio joins the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics as an assistant professor. He comes to Michigan Tech from Farmington Hills, Mich.

He holds a master's in industrial and operations engineering and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan. He also holds a master's in mechanical engineering and a BS in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile.

Camelio's teaching interests include statics and dynamics, mechanical design, statistical quality control, manufacturing engineering, modeling of manufacturing processes, design optimization, metal formation and design analysis of manufacturing systems. His research interests include design and manufacturing with emphasis on manufacturing systems, quality improvement of manufacturing processes, robust and optimal design focusing on product/process interactions, virtual manufacturing, virtual design and design for manufacturability and disassembly.

He has experience as an assistant research scientist, graduate student instructor and graduate research assistant at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor; as a visiting scholar at Chamlers University of Technology in Sweden; and as a full-time instructor for the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. Camelio has coauthored numerous papers appearing in ASME Transactions, Journal of Mechanical Design, ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering, Proceedings of the 2002 ASME Design Engineering Technical Conference and the Proceedings of the 2003 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Conference and Exposition.

Camelio has earned the College of Engineering International Merit Scholarship, the Chilean Government Scholarship, the Best Student in Mechanical Engineering Award from el Colegio de Ingenieros de Chile and the 2001 Best Paper Award from the ASME Design Engineering Technical Conference. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the Society of Automotive Engineers and the American Society for Engineering Education.

He has worked as a consultant for A. T. Kearny Inc. and as an internal consultant for General Motors.

Spandan Maiti
Spandan Maiti joins the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics as an assistant professor. He comes to Michigan Tech from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Maiti holds a PhD from the University of Illinois. His areas of research interest include predictive modeling and large-scale simulation of deformation and failure of advanced structural materials such as nano-composites and high-toughness ceramics, micro- and nano-mechanical analysis of materials in multi-physics environments, multi-scale modeling of deformation of materials and computational models for macroscopic failure.

His undergraduate-level teaching interests include strength of materials, mechanics of materials, finite element method, theory of elasticity, numerical methods and introductory computational solid mechanics. His graduate-level teaching interests include computational non-linear solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, mathematical methods applied to solid mechanics, dynamic properties of materials and micromechanical modeling of techniques of deformation and failure.

Maiti has published numerous papers in journals such as Engineering Fracture Mechanics, the Journal of Mechanics and Physics of Solids, CMES Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Acta Materialia, Proceedings of ICF 11, Proceedings of 8th International Symposia of Fracture Mechanics of Ceramics and Proceedings of ICF 10.
