Our group works at the intersection of computational mechanics, materials modeling, and scientific machine learning, with a focus on areas that involve and advance the application of mechanics, mathematics, and numerical methods. The goal of our research is to improve fundamental understanding of multiscale materials and structures and advance the predictive simulation and design capabilities for complex engineered and natural systems.
