His main scientific and research area is computational mechanics, application of finite element method, as well as development and application of smeared models in bioengineering. Also, important aspect of his research is development and application of smeared methodology within diffusive and convective transport, as well as mechanical properties inside of large biological systems and development of multi-scale and computational finite element models for drug delivery within tumors. He has a strong background in implementation of finite element method in in-house software PAK (over 5 years of experience), parallel with development of software for post- processing and simulation results representation (CAD software).
