Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

My research activities concern primarily numerical analyses to model the behavior of various structures under various loadings. Special attention is paid on problems of Structural Stability, Material Modeling and recently also on some Optimization Procedures. In addition, we have developed some novel ideas to improve the educational procedures in a more student-friendly coherent way, and writing new text-books.
