Hashem worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Duke University from 2004 to 2006. Prior to that, he received a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan. His research at Duke focused on the development of an assumed-gradient algorithm for the level-set equation and the development of a bubble-stabilized finite element method for embedded interfaces. Hashem currently works as a postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Bin YangWeb Page
Bin Yang received his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Duke University in 2006, working under the guidance of Professor Tod Laursen. His research activities focused on the development of mortar-finite element algorithms for frictional contact. In particular, Bin extended some early work in this area to three dimensions and developed novel search algorithms for treating self-contact. Bin currently works as a computational scientist for ESI Group.
