krishna at umich dot eduResearchI am a computational scientist, and my work draws upon nonlinear physics, applied mathematics and numerical methods. A very recent interest is the development of methods for datadriven computational science. I have worked for quite a few years in mathematical biology, biophysics and materials physics. Some specific problems that I have been thinking about recently are: (1) mathematical models of patterning and morphogenesis in developmental biology, (2) mathematical and physical modelling of tumor growth, (3) chemomechanically driven phenomena in materials, such as phase transformations and stressinfluenced mass transport.

 Research GroupPublicationsOpen access course material On December 5 2016, we relaunched a Massively Open Online Class on Finite Element Methods on the Coursera platform. Take a look!Coming soon: A second MOOC on an Introduction to Continuum Physics, available on the EdX platform on March 14, 2017. This will be followed by Advanced Continuum Physics, also on EdX. Here are links to two series of recorded lectures that are openly available, and are being updated on a regular basis:
