Biography

Juan Ocampo, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the St. Mary’s University Engineering Department. He joined St. Mary’s in August 2016.

Ocampo received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in 2013. He also received his M.S in Mechanical Engineering from UTSA in 2009. He came to the United States from Medellin, Colombia, where he received his B.S. degree in Mechanical engineering from EAFIT University.

Ocampo’s main research area is Holistic Structural Integrity Process (HOLSIP) with an emphasis on structural integrity (probabilistic fatigue and damage tolerance analysis). He has active research grants with the Federal Aviation Administration and the United States Air Force in structural integrity.

Ocampo also performs consulting activities for the industry, where he has been supporting the development of the Pilatus PC-24 business jet. In addition, Ocampo is a member of AIAA. He has published many journal and conference papers at different conferences in structural integrity and aging aircraft.
