I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Brigham Young University and head of the computational geometry and mechanics group. My research interests lie at the intersection of computational geometry, mechanics, and relevant engineering applications. Specifically, I am interested in fundamental developments in computer aided design, engineering, and optimization with application to complex multi physics systems common to the aerospace, naval, and automotive industries.
The computational geometry and mechanics group at BYU consists of undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students and scholars with backgrounds in mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering, physics, and mathematics.
I am actively seeking motivated PhD students and qualified postdocs.
