Research

Research Overview

My research interests are in non-smooth systems, linear and nonlinear dynamics of continuous media, machines and structures and fracture mechanics, in particular dynamic (stationary and non-stationary) contact problem, impact, wave propagation in inhomogeneous media, crack growth, dynamic testing of the materials, etc.
