On November 1st 2013 I joined Prof. Stephane Bordas’ team in the Research Unit in Engineering Science at the University of Luxembourg.
Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the field of Computational Mechanics. Within this, I concentrate on the following areas:
Implicit boundary methods particularly suited to simulating models derived from medical images.
Numerical method development; meshfree methods, XFEM and isogeometric analysis.
Mixed variational methods in solid mechanics; particularly for the alleviation of volumetric and shear-locking.
High performance computing; the development of partition of unity methods that can scale to modern distributed and parallel computing platforms.
All of my publications, conference presentations and theses are available for download under an Open Access license in the http://orbilu.uni.lu/ repository. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you think we could collaborate; I am very much open to new ideas and suggestions and I am keen to form new collaborations with researchers in academia and industry.
