My research work is oriented towards the understanding, modeling and optimization of the mechanical response of engineering materials. Particular topics of special interest are (a) the development of new formulations to extend plasticity theory to small scales, (b) predictive modeling of hydrogen assisted cracking, (c) mechanics of functionally graded materials and (d) the role of plastic strain gradients on crack tip mechanics.
