My research focuses primarily on seismic response analysis for geotechnical and structural systems and the computational tools necessary to perform such analyses. I am interested in the development and application of advanced numerical models towards understanding earthquake-related phenomena, such as liquefaction, how the built environment responds to earthquakes, and how best to design resilient infrastructure that meets performance expectations. On the computational side, my work includes the development and implementation of finite element formulations, constitutive models, and numerical solution techniques.
