My research interests lie in four different areas, Structural Optimization, Control of Stochastic PDEs, Uncertainty Quantification methods and High Performance Computing. One major research thrust is the development of efficient methods for optimization under uncertainty in computational mechanics. In this sense, the investigation of GPU based parallelization techniques to accelerate computationally-expensive problems plays an important role in my research activity. Other research thrusts involve the optimal control for random PDEs, structural topology optimization under uncertainty and the development of approximation techniques, such as surrogate models and reduce order models, for the efficient optimization of computationally-expensive black-box functions.
