Dr. Milos B. Djukic, Associate Professor is a specialist in the field of hydrogen embrittlement, materials and corrosion science, and the mechanical behavior of materials. He has more than 20 years of teaching and research experience and is the author/co-author of 4 books, 5 book chapters, 1 patent, 72 refereed scientific papers and 120 papers published in conference proceedings and journals.

His new book (co-authored with Prof. Branko Popov) entitled: “Hydrogen Embrittlement Theory and Prevention of Hydrogen Damage in Metals and Alloys, 1st Edition” will be published in 2021 by Elsevier. The book chapter (co-authored with Prof. Branko Popov and Prof. Jong Won Lee), entitled: “Hydrogen Permeation and Hydrogen-Induced Cracking” in the “Handbook of Environmental Degradation of Materials, 3rd Edition” was published by Elsevier in 2018.

Since 2014 he is an external peer reviewer for scientific projects for the following European scientific agencies: Research Foundation Flanders, Belgium, National Science Centre, Poland, and the Dutch Research Council, Netherlands. He was a keynote speaker – topic hydrogen embrittlement at the Materials Science and Engineering 2018 Conf., Germany. He was also an invited speaker on the 13th Int. Conf. on Diffusion in Solids and Liquids in Austria, and on the CORROSION 2015 Conf., USA. Recently, in 2021, he gave an invited talk on the  HYDROGENIUS, I2CNER and HydroMate Joint Research Symposium on Hydrogen Materials Interactions 2021, Japan. He was an external Ph.D. thesis examiner at the University of Queensland, Australia, and ISAE-ENSMA, Université de Poitiers, France. He is a member of the editorial board of seven international journals: International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, Frontiers in Materials, Metals, Coatings, Journal of Pipeline Science and Engineering, Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale, and Structural Integrity and Life.  He has 217 verified editor records and 111 reviews for 40 international journals including Science, Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia.

In 2019, he was a Managing Guest Editor of Engineering Fracture Mechanics journal, SI titled: “Recent Advances on Hydrogen Embrittlement Understanding and Future Research Framework”. In 2020/2021 he is a Guest Topic Editor of Frontiers in Materials journal, Research Topic: “Hydrogen Embrittlement in Metals: Characterization, Mechanism and Prevention”.
