Research Interests

Theoretical, computational, and experimental aspects of deformation, fatigue, and fracture of engineering materials, with interests in both monolithic and composite materials.  Specific interests include material characterization, fatigue and fracture behavior, multiaxial fatigue model development, cumulative damage studies, time-dependent behavior, temperature effects, elastic-plastic and elastic-viscoplastic constitutive modeling, and finite element applications.
