The University of Utah is pleased to welcome a multi-talented new computational mechanics professor: Ashley Spear, newly graduated from Tony Ingraffea’s group at Cornell.

Dr. Spear's work (in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon and Lawrence Livermore Lab) using the Advanced Photon Source to obtain synchrotron-based measurments of 3D crack evolution in polycrystalline materials.

Dr. Spear is a published expert in high-performance multiscale computing as well as experimental materials characterization, which is a perfect counterpart to the University if Utah’s existing focus on macroscale constitutive modeling with high-performance simulations using the Material Point Method.
