I am a postdoctoral research associate working with Prof. A. Karma in the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Complex Systems in the Physics Department at Northeastern University. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. B. Bourdin (MATH, LSU).
I am fascinated with solving the mysteries of the universe through computational science. My research focus is to advance our understanding of the underlying micro/macrophysics of solid mechanics phenomena and to use this knowledge to develop advanced materials that will make life on earth better.
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.
