My research interests are in computational mechanics, where I work on the development and implementation of novel discretization techniques for the analysis of solids, structures and fluids that overcome limitations of today's standard numerical tools. I am particularly interested in isogeometric immersed boundary and collocation methods, that combine higher order accuracy and robustness with efficient ways of incorporating very complex geometric models and are attractive for large-scale parallel computing. The main applications driving my work are from biomechanics, engineering mechanics, and structural dynamics.
