Dr. Attila Zsaki is an Associate Professor in the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering. He obtained his B.Eng. degree from Ryerson University in 1996 and his M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering from the University of Toronto in 1999 and 2003, respectively. From 2003 to 2004 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow and from 2004 to 2005 a Research Associate at the University of Toronto's Lassonde Institute for Engineering Geoscience in the Computational Geomechanics Group. 


His research is focused on modeling and computational aspects of geosciences (rock & soil mechanics) with particular interest in multiphysics modeling of continuum and discontinuum. His other areas of interest are scientific computing, parallel computing, computer graphics and mesh generation. He joined the faculty of Concordia in June 2005.

In addition to academia, Dr. Zsaki has worked in the industry as software developer and consultant on various projects ranging from 3D digital content creation, geomechanics analysis software, and lately on high-performance scientific computing applications for modeling continuum behaviour. His interests in scientific computing are performance optimization and parallel computing on scalable, shared-memory multiprocessor systems, graphics processing units (GPU) and FPGAs.
