I work in the areas of multibody dynamics, non-smooth contact mechanics, and robotics. My past work spanned several modeling and simulation related topics including non-smooth modeling of rigid multi-point contacts and impacts, approximate force-history estimation in pseudo-rigid impacts, and analytical approximations for coefficient of restitution for a class of viscoelastic impact models. I have also done some work on the design of passively controlled compliant bio-inspired robot legs for the purpose of locomotion over soft-substrates. I currently plan to work on applying non-smooth and reduced-order modeling techniques to various domains including vibration analysis, industrial robotics and design optimization/automation.
