Research
My work draws from nonlinear mechanics, materials physics, applied mathematics and numerical methods. I am particularly interested in problems of mathematical biology, biophysics and the materials physics. Current research interests include: (1) mathematical and physical modelling of tumor growth, (2) cell mechanics (3) chemomechanically driven phenomena in materials, such as phase transformations and stressinfluenced mass transport.
