Research aim and objectives

• Applied Elasticity, Micropolar Elasticity, wave equation and Fracture Mechanics. • Computational Mechanics and its applications on solids, fluids, structures, fracture mechanics, heat transfer, aerodynamics among others. • Numerical methods for partial differential equations (FEM, BEM, IGA, XFEM, XIGA, etc.) with special emphasis on fracture mechanics.


I get my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering at the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Chile. It was there that by taking courses such as Applied Elasticity, Generalized Finite Element Methods, Numerical methods applied to mechanical engineering that my curiosity towards numerical simulation started. After doing my thesis on Extended Isogeometric Analysis for Fracture Mechanics, I earned an MSc scholarship from Conicyt (Comision Nacional Cientifica y Tecnologica) to do an MSc in Mechanical engineering. Currently, I'm working on my MSc Thesis under the supervision of prof. Elena Atroshenko. The thesis is about adaptive refinement strategies using both residual and recovery-based error estimator for PHT-Splines, with applications on acoustic propagation and fracture mechanics.
