Research aim and objectives
Statistical inverse problems in medical diagnosis, implicit boundary methods for soft hyperelastic materials, geometrically non-linear thin structures.
« Supported by the Fonds National de la Recherche, Luxembourg (#6693582) » 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.
- Statistical inverse problems with application to medical diagnosis.
- 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.
