Our group investigates mechanical phenomena in a range of systems. Current and recent research activities include plasma-coupled combustion, uncertainty quantification, model selection, jet noise control, ultrasound-induced tissue injury, the dynamics of atomically thin liquid films, cellular blood flow, simulation of advanced solid rocket motors, thermal transport at crystal lattice boundaries, self-healing hydrodynamics in autonomic composites, and ion machining of semiconductor materials. Most of our investigations utilize advanced computer simulations tools---many of our own design---coupled with detailed analysis.
