My work draws from applied mathematics, nonlinear mechanics, and thermodynamics. Of specific interest to me are problems in mathematical biology, biophysics and materials physics. In mathematical biology and biophysics, my group, our collaborators and I work on models of tumor growth, and cell mechanics. In materials physics we are particularly interested in phase transformations in structural and battery materials.
