Christian accomplished his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University, Canada. Prior to enrolling at Carleton University, he obtained both his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and his Master of Science in Metallurgy and Materials Science from the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, Mexico. The main objective of his Ph. D. research was to develop a damage tolerant model for the fatigue life prediction of high-performance engineering components used in the aerospace industry.
A recipient of Roberto Rocca International Fellowship, Dr. Christian Garcia was enrolled as a guest worker at the Institute for Aerospace Research from the National Research Center, Canada while pursuing his Doctorate.
Currently, Christian is a full-time professor at the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, Mexico, where his main research topics are residual stress technologies, fatigue crack growth, welding and processing technologies, computational fracture mechanics and mechanical behavior of materials.
