Biography

Dr. Karel Matouš is the College of Engineering Associate Professor of Computational Mechanics in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Notre Dame. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in the Theoretical & Applied Mechanics from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Dr. Matouš is a Co-Director and the lead of the Computational Physics Team of the Center for Shock Wave-processing of Advanced Reactive Materials (C-SWARM, $10 Millions over 5 years) that has been established as one of six NNSA's center of Excellence whose primary focus is on the emerging field of predictive science. His research group focuses on computational mechanics and physics, computational science and engineering, computational materials science, advanced numerical methods, microtomography-based computational and experimental modeling of heterogeneous materials, and multiscale/multitime/multiphysics modeling of complex heterogeneous nonlinear materials and systems. He has authored or co-authored more than 90 journal or conference papers. He is involved in several interdisciplinary research programs with funding from various agencies and private companies. Dr. Matouš received the Rector's Award for the best Ph.D. students from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Two articles from Dr. Matouš’ group have been featured on Science Direct Top 25 Hottest Articles in their respective engineering areas. He is a member of ASME, SES, USACM, and IACM. Dr. Matouš is a Fellow of ASME.
