Working on basic theories and numerical methods of computational mechanics and its application in sciences and engineering practices. Especially focusing on numerical methods (meshfree and particle methods, finite element and extended finite element methods, finite volume methods) for multiscale, multiple media (rigid body, solid, fluid) and multi-physics (structure, thermal, chemical, electromagnetism) behavior of materials and structures under strong impact load (such as impact, shock and explosion). Research directions include computational impact dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, hypervelocity impact dynamics, micro- and nano-mechanics and multiscale analysis, high performance computing and analysis of large engineering structure.
