Research Interests 

  • Computational mechanics with focus on finite element methods (FEM), discrete 
    element methos (DEM) and smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH)
  • Physics-based modeling and simulation of metal additive manufacturing (AM):
    macroscale (part-scale thermo-solid-mechanics), mesoscale (melt pool thermo-
    hydrodynamics and powder spreading) and microscale (microstructure) modeling
  • Computational solid, structural and contact mechanics
  • Computational thermo-solid and (multi-phase) thermo-fluid mechanics
  • Modeling of Solid-liquid and liquid-vapor phase transitions
  • Material modeling
  • Modeling of cohesive powders and granular materials
  • Reduced-order modelling
  • Geometrically exact beam theories
  • Mechanical contact and intermolecular interactions between slender beams/fibers
  • Coupling/embedding of reduced-dimensional structeres and 3D continua
  • Modeling of fibrous systems/materials with complex fiber arrangements/interactions
  • Inverse parameter identification and data-based modeling approaches
