Ronaldo Borja works in theoretical and computational solid mechanics, geomechanics, and geosciences. At Stanford University, he teaches an undergraduate course in geotechnical engineering, a graduate course in mechanics and the finite element method, and two doctoral level courses in computational plasticity and computational poromechanics. His research includes the development of multi-scale discontinuity framework for crack and fracture propagation utilizing the strong discontinuity and extended finite element methods; solution techniques for multi-physical processes such as coupled solid deformation-fluid diffusion in saturated and unsaturated porous media; stabilized finite element methods for solid/fluid interaction and nonlinear contact mechanics; and nanometer-scale characterization of the inelastic deformation and fracture properties of shales. Ronaldo Borja is the author of a textbook entitled *Plasticity Modeling and Computation* published by Springer. He serves as co-editor of two leading journals in his field, the *International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics* and *Acta Geotechnica*, and as co-editor of a book series, the *Springer Series in Geomechanics and Geoengineering*.
