My primary research interest is in multiscale computational plasticity and damage mechanics of crystalline materials, composites, and ceramics with emphasis on the theoretical modeling, numerical simulation of material behavior, and experimental correlation. Research activities of particular interest includes modelling at different length scales including atomistic simulation, crystal plasticity finite element method, and local and nonlocal continuum plasticity. Central to my research is serving as a lead developer of PRISMS-Plasticity software, which is an open-source parallel 3-D crystal plasticity and continuum plasticity finite element code.
