I work as as PhD student at the Jean Le Rond D'Alembert Institute of UPMC in Paris, France, under the supervision of Prof. J.-J. Marigo and C. Maurini. I work on the theoretical and numerical study of thin film systems undergoing multifissuration and delamination. On the theoretical side, I perform asymptotic analysis to obtain reduced models in order to formulate the variational problem of the evolution of fractures in the thin film system. I write finite element codes for my numerical experiments. For quick tests, I write in Python and take advantage of FEniCS. For production, I write massively parallel code optimized for HPC using PETSc and running on US- and France- based Super Computers.
I'm happy to collaborate with B. Bourdin at LSU - Baton Rouge, LA, for what concerns the numerics with HPC; J.-F. Babadjian at J.-L. Lions Institute - Paris, FR and D. Henao Manrique from PUCC - Santiago, CL, regarding the analytical developments in calculus of variations; B. Roman from PMMH, ESPCI, Paris, FR.
