Predictive multiscale modeling and simulation
Our current research focuses on predictive, multi-scale modeling and simulation of microstructure evolution in confined granular systems, with an emphasis in manufacturing processes and the relationship between product fabrication and performance.

Application areas of interest include:
    (i) particulate products and processes (e.g., flow, mixing, segregation, consolidation, and compaction of powders),

    (ii) continuous manufacturing (e.g., Quality by Design, model predictive control, and reduced order models), and

    (iii) performance of pharmaceutical solid products (e.g., tensile strength, stiffness, swelling and disintegration), biomaterials (e.g., transport and feeding of corn stover) and energetic materials (e.g., deformation and heat generation under quasi-static, near-resonant and impact conditions, and formation and growth of hot spots) materials.
