I am an Assistant Professor of Aerospace Engineering Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder and an Affiliated Faculty Member in the Department of Applied Mathematics.
I lead the Computational Mechanics and Geometry Laboratory (CMGLab) which pioneers new approaches to the modeling and simulation of aerospace, naval, and energy systems by leveraging synergies between computational mechanics and computational geometry. A particular focus of the CMGLab is the design, analysis, and implementation of geometric structure-preserving methods for complex turbulent fluid flow, fluid-structure interaction, and wave propagation. In addition, the CMGLab is actively involved in the development of integrated design, analysis, and optimization technologies using the framework of isogeometric analysis, a novel computational approach that offers the possibility of integrating finite element analysis into conventional CAD tools.
In 2016, I was identified as one of the world’s most highly cited researchers in the area of Computer Science by Thomson Routers.
