Current Interests ​ My research interests focus on the numerical solution of problems with scientific and industrial applications in the fields of computational mechanics and material science. In particular, I am highly interested on understanding and predicting the micromechanical behavior of heterogeneous materials by modeling and simulating their discontinuous nature as well as development of dimensionality reduction models for large-scale multi-interface problems. ​ Research Specialties ​ Integrated computational material engineering: Development of multiscale methods for MBD energy calculations in large systems, development of discrete element models for fracture in polycrystalline materials, digital microstructure reconstruction and analysis, raw material characterization based on image analysis Numerical analysis: Performance analysis of algorithms, consistency, stability and convergence analysis for numerical schemes, solution of coefficient identification problems in linear parabolic equations.
