Michael Borden

Assistant Professor

Dr. Borden is interested in computational mechanics and isogeometric analysis with an emphasis on developing efficient numerical methods and computational models to predict complex material behavior.

Prior to pursuing a PhD, Dr. Borden worked for five years as a computational scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, where he developed high-performance computational tools for engineering analysis and design.

Research Description

Dr. Borden's research focuses on developing computational methods at the intersection of computational geometry and engineering analysis that enable more efficient simulations of complex material and structural processes. His research provides methods that facilitate the transfer of computer aided design (CAD) descriptions to analysis software. He also develops numerical tools for the prediction of failure modes in complex three-dimensional structures. He will apply these methods to develop predictive computational models that allow engineers to design and study advanced materials and complex structures.
