My name is David Cantor. I was born in Colombia. I’m a Civil Engineer (2011) and Master of Enginnering (2013) from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota. Although I loved working as Geotechnical Engineer after my master’s, science, technology and mentoring are some of my dearest passions.
In 2014, I started a Ph.D. at the Université de Montpellier, France, working on numerical approaches to simulate grain crushing for the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA).
Then, between 2017 and 2018, I joined the Department of Civil Engineering at the same university as a teaching assistant.
In 2018, I started exiting research at Chiang Mai University in Thailand, on deformable materials (such as rubbers) and mixtures of rigid-deformable grains.
Now, I’m in Canada working on crushing and damage of granular media for applications in energy and environment.
