Biography

Dr. Matouš is a College of Engineering Associate Professor of Computational Mechanics in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Matouš is also a Director of the Center for Shock Wave-processing of Advanced Reactive Materials (C-SWARM) that has been established as one of six NNSA's center of Excellence whose primary focus is on the emerging field of predictive science. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in the Theoretical & Applied Mechanics from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Dr. Matouš’ interests are in the area of predictive computational science and engineering at multiple spatial and temporal scales including multi-physics interactions, the development of advanced numerical methods and high- performance parallel computing. His research focuses on the interplay between applied mathematics, computer/computational science and physics/materials science. Moreover, he leads a research program in image-based (data-driven) modeling of heterogeneous materials focusing on co-designed simulations and experiments based on statistically representative analysis. He has authored or co-authored more than hundred and fifty journal and/or conference proceedings articles and abstracts. 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. One of his papers appeared as the cover article in Proceedings of the Royal Society A. He is a member of ASME, SES, USACM, EUROMECH, and IACM. Dr. Matouš is a Fellow of ASME. Dr. Matouš serves as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Computational Physics and International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering.
