New Postdoc Openings!

We have openings for postdoctoral positions in my group at UCSB/Materials. The successful candidate will develop mathematical models (phase-field, molecular dynamics, DFT) and numerical methods to investigate the origins of chemo-mechanical degradation in battery materials. Beyond batteries, we also have openings to pursue original research on topics related to phase transformations in soft magnetic alloys, shape-memory alloys, and light interactive molecular crystals.

Please send an email expressing your interest, together with a CV and representative publication(s) to I will be reviewing applications immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Several Ph.D. Openings!

We have several openings for PhD positions in our group! We are looking for motivated and self-driven students to pursue creative research at the intersection of mechanics, materials, and modeling.

Please feel free to send me an email expressing your interest, together with a CV at More details on applying to the graduate program at UCSB/Materials can be found here:
