Blaise Bourdin
Professor, Mathematics and Statistics

My formal training is at the meeting point of solid mechanics, scientific computing, and applied mathematics. I borrow techniques for these areas to study problems in mechanical science with a specific focus on problems involving defect mechanics and optimal design. I have cultivated this multi-disciplinary training by revisiting “classical” problems with more advanced technical tools, by skewing my theoretical work towards problems of particular relevance to engineering and science, and by using investigative numerical simulations as a modeling tool in complex multi-scale problems.
