Fundamental contributions to the numerical treatment of elasto-plastic/elasto-viscoplastic problems involving finite strains and deformations.
Contributed prominently to the computational modelling of frictional contact problems and to the simulation of progressively damaging solids
Significant contributions to research into adaptive mesh refinement procedures for elasto-plastic materials with evolving geometries, and the development of iterative equation solution procedures for large-scale engineering problems
Recent significant research contributions include novel computational strategies for fluid-structure interaction and fluid flows with free surfaces and interfaces incorporating surface tension
Actively involved in research on multiscale modelling of materials and structures
