Biographical Overview
I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I received my Ph.D. from McMaster University in 2014. Before joining MIT, I was holding Forming Technologies Incorporated’s Lead Mechanics position where I was responsible for the development of a new sheet metal forming simulator. My research interest spans different areas of physical modeling including but not limited to mechanics of solids and fluids, multiphase flow, fracture and damage, plasticity, and contact besides numerical methods. Here, I will be working on modeling of induced seismicity in reservoirs with faults considering their coupled Multiphysics response.
