Research Statement:


I am interested in parallel computing, particularly domain decomposition methods  such as Finite Element Tearing and Interconnecting (FETI), and currently involved with several projects in this field: inequality constraints (contact) including mortar elements, coupled elasto-acoustic frequency response, stochastic finite elements, and multilevel methods.
