MICDE / AIM Seminar: Blaise Bourdin, PhD, Professor of Mathematics & Statistics, McMaster University
February 25, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
THE SEMINAR WILL ONLY BE OFFERED ONLINE!
Bio: Blaise Bourdin is a professor in the department of mathematics and statistics at McMaster University (Hamilton, ON, Canada). 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.
