Living at the interface

We develop new modeling and computer-based simulation techniques to address of problems in mechanical and biomedical engineering. We specialize on interface problems. These include classical interfacial mechanics and problems at the interface of engineering and biology. Particular research interests include Computational Mechanics, Complex Fluids, Phase-field Methods, Biomechanics, Tumor-growth modeling, and Multiphase Flow.
