Research aim and objectives
Statistical inverse problems in medical diagnosis, implicit boundary methods for soft hyperelastic materials, geometrically non-linear thin structures.
- 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.
