Martin Ostoja-Starzewski did his undergraduate studies (1977) at the Cracow University of Technology, Poland, followed by M.S. (1980) and Ph.D. (1983) degrees at McGill University, Canada, all in mechanical engineering. His research interests are primarily in (thermo)mechanics of random and fractal media, advanced continuum theories, as well as aerospace, bio- and geophysical applications of engineering science and mechanics. He wrote over 130 journal papers and two books: 1. Microstructural Randomness and Scaling in Mechanics of Materials, CRC Press (2008); 2. Thermoelasticity with Finite Wave Speeds, Oxford Mathematical Monographs, Oxford University Press (2009). He also (co)edited 13 books/journal special issues and coorganized various meetings. He is Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Applied Mechanics and sits on editorial boards of the Journal of Thermal Stresses, Probabilistic Engineering Mechanics, Actual Problems of Aviation and Aerospace Systems, International Journal of Damage Mechanics, Archive of Applied Mechanics, Acta Mechanica, International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences, and Journal of Applied Mathematics. He is also Coeditor of the CRC Modern Mechanics and Mathematics Series and Fellow of ASME, AAM, WIF, as well as Associate Fellow of AIAA.
