Career Highlights


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.
