My research interests include computational fluid dynamics and solid mechanics, solid/fluid coupling, modeling and simulation of the mechanics of biological cells, and
physically-based simulation for computer graphics.

I was a mentor in the Technovation
Challenge program in NYC. Our team won 1st place in NYC and went on to the national competition at Google HQ
where we placed 3rd overall! Go Firebirds! Read about the team and our winning app in this Huffington Post article.
