Our group is interested in fundamental understanding of how materials behave in extreme environments. We aredeveloping computational and simulation algorithms to overcome the timescale challenges in atomistic simulations. Currently, we are focusing on the mechanical stress- and time-dependent manifestations of strain localization, plasticity, avalanche in heterogeneous materials and in systems far from equilibrium.
