Étienne Martin is an industrial chairholder in Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing at Polytechnique Montréal. He joined the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2018 as an Assistant Professor. Two years later, he joined Polytechnique Montréal where he was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor.

Étienne obtained a PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University (2010) under the supervision of Emeritus Professor, John J. Jonas. He then spent 10 years in the private sector, working for prominent manufacturing companies like General Motors, SNC Lavalin, Arcelor Mittal and General Electric. During his industrial career, Étienne contributed to the development of new alloys for the most demanding components in aero and land-based gas turbine applications, as well as new parts introduction fabricated by additive manufacturing for GE Additives.

Étienne’s research uses experiments, analytical theory and computer simulations to explore the processing-structure-property relationships in structural metallics. His research interests include the mechanical properties and environmental performance of materials, alloy design, advanced materials processing and characterization. Recent work has focused on new technologies to improve processing for powder materials, improve fatigue and creep in metals through conventional forging and Additive Manufacturing, on alloy design for transportation and energy applications and development of models for Integrated Computational Materials Engineering efforts.
