Prof. Momeni’s main areas of expertise are Computational Mechanics and Material Science and Materials Genome. He develops a synergistic interaction among computation, experiment, and theory to design new advanced materials with superior properties at a fraction of current cost and time-to-market. Specifically, he focuses on developing theoretical and numerical tools to understand the multiscale and multiphysics response of materials. He utilizes various analytical methods, including atomistic-, meso-, and macro-scale models/simulations, along with experimental techniques with atomic resolutions to achieve this goal. In particular, he studies materials and processes for additive manufacturing, low-dimensional electronic materials, materials for energy applications, materials under extreme conditions, and metamaterials.
Prof. Momeni’s lab is equipped with a custom cluster with GPU nodes and data storage nodes, with several open-source and commercial software packages including MOOSE, LAMMPS, COMSOL, and Thermo-Calc. His students and postdocs are developing theoretical and numerical models across a broad length and temporal scales, ranging from atomistic molecular dynamics to mesoscale phase field, and macroscale continuum models.
