About Me.

I am a postdoctoral research associate working with Prof. A. Karma in the Center for Inter-diciplnary Research on Complex Systems in the Physics Department at Northeastern University. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics under the supervision Prof. B. Bourdin (MATH, LSU).

I am fascinated with solving the mysteries of the universe through computational science. My goal is to understand the underlying micro/macrophysics of solid mechanics phenomena and to use this knowledge to develop advanced materials that will make life on earth better. This will enable us to go farther into space and further into the future.

My main research interest is computational solid mechanics, and I specialize in fracture mechanics, thermoelasticity, and plasticity. For the duration of my doctoral studies, I have worked closely with HPC packages PETSc, TAO, libMesh, and Hypre, and, as a result, have developed two parallel codes (vfmfd,vfmfe) for simulation of fracture in thin films and general 2D/3D elastic mediums.
