Ph.D. Students

HoyongShin
  • Hoyong Shin is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Chung-ang University, South Korea and his M.S. in mechanical engineering from KAIST, South Korea. His research focus is on developing a finite element edge-based fracture model which is available using nonlocal properties.
matthew
  • Matthew Martinez is a PhD student in the department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. and M.S. from Texas A&M University as well. His research focuses on expanding the novel Dual Mesh Finite Domain Method to advection-diffusion equations, including the Navier-Stokes equation.
Alekhya
  • Alekhya Banki  is a PhD student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. She holds a Master’s in Civil Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. She received her Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering and Master’s in Structural Engineering(dual degree) from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. Her research primarily focuses on modeling fracture and damage in architected materials using graph-based finite element approach.
Mutaz
  • Mutaz Dwairy is a PhD student in the department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering from Jordan University of Science and technology. His research focuses on developing clinically relevant model for cancer diagnosis and prognosis using ultrasound elastography.
