Professional Summary

Development and application of advanced computational methods (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, density functional theory, coarse-grained methods, etc.) to investigate the behavior and properties of novel materials across multiple scales. Some of the current research projects are:

  • Mechanics of nanostructured materials
  • Corrosion related degradation and failure in extreme environments
  • Electronic properties of nanostructured materials
  • Materials in extreme environments (Shock, high strain rates, high pressures, high temperatures)
  • Thermodynamics and phase transformations
  • Interfaces effects on mechanical behavior
