Research interests

My research focuses on the fracture of brittle and quasi-brittle materials, and the friction of dry and wet surfaces.

In particular, I am interested in:

  • Multi-scale approaches for the homogenization of fracture and friction properties of heterogeneous media.
  • Mechanics of fluid-driven fractures in porous media.
  • Development of analytical solutions for three-dimensional fracture propagation under multi-physics coupling.
  • Numerical approaches for large-scale three-dimensional crack propagation in composite materials.
