I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical, Industrial and Aerospace Engineering (MIAE) at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. 

My main research interests are in nonlinear vibrations and elastic waves in periodic media with applications ranging from turbomachinery and aircraft structures to phononic crystals and mechanical metamaterials.

I currently work on mechanical metamaterials. My main focus is on studying nonlinear dynamics and wave propagation characteristics of these periodic structures. Most recently, I have been working on dynamic instabilities and non-reciprocity in mechanical metamaterials. See here for more information on my academic background.
