A Brief Introduction

I am the Yoh Family Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University. I was born in the great state of New Hampshire on October 25th, 1972. I grew up in the state and attended Goffstown Area High School. In the summer of 1990, I took a course in Advanced Physics in the Advanced Studies Program at St. Paul's School in Concord, N.H. I then attended the University of New Hampshire as a Granite State Scholar, where I majored in Mechanical Engineering, and was a member of the UNH Crew Team. After dabbling in research in the area of finite element methods, I decided to attend graduate school and study Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at Northwestern University. I finished my PhD at Northwestern in the summer of 1999, and joined the faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University in the subsequent fall. My research is focused on the development of new numerical methods that enable the investigation of emerging theories in applied mechanics, with particular emphasis on the important role played by interfaces and defects.
