My interest is on developing a multi-scale, multi-paradigm materials modeling approach followed by experimental characterizations to study key functional behavior of complex materials, which are critical to the infrastructure underlying the science and technology enterprises of our society. Depending on the problem of interest, we employ a variety of computational and experimental techniques including (but not limited to) first-principles calculations, reactive and non-reactive molecular dynamics modeling, monte-carlo simulations, coarse-grain modeling, statistical analysis, machine-learning, micro mechanics-based homogenization, continuum modeling, 3D printing, and mechanical testings. These state-of-the-art molding tools enable developing a unified understanding of the non-intutive behavior of materials across extended time- and length-scales.
