Tarek I. Zohdi received his Ph.D. in 1997 in Computational and Applied Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin. He received his Habilitation in Mechanics from the Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany, in 2002. His main research interests are in micromechanical material design, granular flow and the mechanics of high-strength fabric, with emphasis on computational approaches for nonconvex multiscale-multiphysics inverse problems, in particular addressing the crucial issue of how large numbers of micro-constituents interact to produce macroscale aggregate behavior. He has published over 75 archival refereed journal papers and two books: (a) Introduction to computational micromechanics, Springer-Verlag (T. Zohdi and P. Wriggers) and (b) An introduction to modeling and simulation of particulate flows, SIAM (T. Zohdi). He is currently Professor and Vice-Chair for Instruction in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Chair of the Engineering Science Program at UC Berkeley.
