Profile Summary

He is a member of "Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society" and "The American Society of Mechanical Engineers". His research interest lies in theoretical and computational challenges common to geometric modeling and solid mechanics, and his current focus is on developing tightly integrated design & simulation strategies for large engineering systems. Current NSF and industry funded projects include automated dimensional reduction, goal-oriented de-featuring error estimation, multi-dimensional coupling, and forward & inverse problems in manufacturing process control. Prior projects include Monte Carlo simulation, tolerance analysis & NC tool-path generation. He is the director of Engineering Representations and Simulation Laboratory (ERSL; www.ersl.wisc.edu).
