MICDE / AIM Seminar: Blaise Bourdin, PhD, Professor of Mathematics & Statistics, McMaster University
February 25, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Bio: Dr. Bourdin’s formal training is at the meeting point of solid mechanics, scientific computing, and applied mathematics. He borrows techniques for these areas to study problems in mechanical science with a specific focus on problems involving defect mechanics and optimal design. He has cultivated this multi-disciplinary training by revisiting “classical” problems with more advanced technical tools, by skewing my theoretical work towards problems of particular relevance to engineering and science, and by using investigative numerical simulations as a modeling tool in complex multi-scale problems.
Dr. Bourdin’s research focusses on modeling, analysis, and numerical implementations of problems arising in reservoir engineering, defect mechanics, optimal design, and image processing. He is the recipient of multiple research grants from the National Science Foundation, the Louisiana Board of Regents and industry, totalling over $6M. He has written several high impact publications, including three ESI highly cited papers in two disciplines (mathematics and engineering). He also maintains several open source software projects.
Talk title: Dr. Bourdin’s talk title will be posted soon.
The MICDE Winter 2022 Seminar Series is open to all. University of Michigan faculty and students interested in computational and data sciences are encouraged to attend.
This seminar is cohosted by the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery (MICDE) and the department of Applied & Interdisciplinary Mathematics at the University of Michigan. Dr. Bourdin will be hosted by Dr. Selim Esedoglu, Professor of Mathematics.
This is a hybrid event and will be held in-person and broadcast online via Zoom. In-person location and link to Zoom registration will be posted soon. Note: You may register after the event has started.
