Research Areas:

Dynamic Systems, Acoustics, and Vibrations, Emerging Manufacturing Processes for Materials, Tissues, and Devices, Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling, Computational Analysis, Structural and Human Health Monitoring

Interest Areas:

Broad interest in the study of ultrasound propagation and scattering in heterogeneous and microstructured materials. This interest spans a variety of material systems including metamaterials, composites, polycrystalline media, and polymeric materials with characteristics including strong property fluctuations, nonlinearity, incompressibility, and anisotropy. Applications include microstructure characterization, ultrasonic beam control, structural health assessment, and qualification of parts especially in the additive manufacturing domain.
