Experiments Never Fail (T.A, Edison).
Either DO or DO NOT, there is no TRY (Yoda).

My research group develops advanced computational methods for multi-scale multi-physics problems in civil, nuclear, electrical, and mechanical engineering. I am especially interested in monolithic higher-order adaptive discretizations of time-dependent problems.

K-12 Outreach

In recent years I became interested in providing K-12 schools with easy access to computer programming, 3D modeling, and other subjects related to scientific computing and Industry 4.0. I am actively working with K-12 schools in the U.S. and abroad.
