Biography

I am a Senior Member of Technical Staff in the Computational Multiphysics Department. I work in both analyst and developer roles on the ALEGRA team.

My background is in computational solid mechanics, and my main areas of interest center around computational modeling of multiphysics and multiscale systems and include:

  • microstructural origins of macroscale behavior,
  • material model development,
  • micromechanics and multiscale modeling methods,
  • multiphysics methods for arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian simulations in areas of solid mechanics, shock physics, electromechanics, magnetohydrodynamics, radiation hydrodynamics, and high-velocity impact dynamics,
  • numerical methods, scalable algorithms, and software implementations for multiphysics modeling on next-generation architectures.

Education

  • 2015: Ph.D. in Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics from University of Texas at Austin.
  • 2010: M.S. in Computational and Applied Mathematics from University of Texas at Austin
  • 2005: M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University
  • 2001: B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University

I also worked as a structural analyst and designer in the Rotor Blades Engineering Department at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation from 2002 to 2008.
