I am a member of the Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics (SESM) faculty at UC Davis, and also a member of the Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics. My research interests lie in the areas of computational solid mechanics and applied mathematics, with recent emphasis on new methods development for failure modeling in materials and in ab initio electronic-structure (Kohn-Sham equations of DFT) calculations. Current projects include developing polyhedral finite element methods for fracture simulations and geometric-based (isogeometric) methods in mechanics. Other areas of interest include level set methods, Bayesian theory of probability, maximum-entropy methods in mechanics, convex optimization, stochastic PDEs and UQ, and parallel computing. I am a Regional Editor of International Journal of Fracture and serve as a member of the Executive Council of USACM. Here is information on my research group. Prior to UCD, I was a research associate at Princeton; Ph.D. in Theoretical & Applied Mechanics from Northwestern, M.S. from OGI, and B.Tech. from IIT Bombay.
