My research focuses on theoretical and numerical modeling of coupled phenomena. I use modern continuum mechanics, thermodynamics far from equilibrium, and phase-field models to describe the evolution of fluid-solid and solid-solid interactions. My research also includes modeling of fluid flow in poroelastic media, multiphase materials undergoing chemical reactions and deformation, fracturing phenomena, and plate scale deformation.
