Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Michigan Energy Institute
His research group investigates simulation-based and data-driven computational synthesis of for mechanical, industrial and biomedical systems. The target systems are modeled by utilizing tools and algorithms in computational mechanics, geometric reasoning, image recognition, statistical data processing, and optimized by numerical optimization algorithms. Recent application domains includes lightweight automotive structures, intelligent transportation systems, water desalination systems, energy-efficient production systems, biomedical deformable image registration, and statistical protein energy potentials.
