I’m a research engineer experienced in computer modeling, finite element analysis (FEA), and solver development. I’m passionate about the application of modeling and simulation tools to solve real-world engineering problems. My research topic revolves around phase-field fracture modeling. In my postgraduate studies, I've developed a generalized framework for brittle, ductile and fatigue fracture with phase-field methodology and implemented it in Abaqus FE software. The codes are available online (, and I've been maintaining, updating and helping others with them ever since. I’m open to new opportunities and challenges in the industry within the European Union to apply my expertise and help develop new ideas, products, and services, as well as improving the existing ones.
