We combine mathematical modeling, mechanics and computations to understand the small-scale mechanics of materials and biological systems. Below is a selection of recent papers. Common themes are the nonlinear mechanics of two-dimensional materials and structures (shells, graphene, biomembranes, epithelia), geometry, continuum and computational mechanics, or the connection between molecular and continuum models. I am also interested in maximum-entropy meshfree approximation and in methods to build models from machine learning.
Our current focus is on cell and tissue mechanics.
