About

Dr. Soheil Soghrati is an assistant professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering & Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. He earned his PhD in Structural Engineering with Minor in Computational Science in Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, during which he held a graduate research assistantship at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. He received both his Masters and Bachelor degrees in Civil Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology and a certification of Advanced Structural Engineering from Bauhaus University in Germany. Dr. Soghrati joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at OSU in June 2013 with a joint appointment in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He is also one of the core faculties of the Simulation Innovation and Modeling Center (SIMCenter) at OSU. Dr. Soghrati’s research interests lay in the area of computational solid mechanics with especial focus on advanced finite element and meshfree methods for the treatment of problems with complex and/or evolving morphologies. Currently, he is the director of the Automated Computational Mechanics Laboratory (ACML) at OSU. Some of the active research projects in ACML includes simulating localized corrosion and corrosion assisted damage processes, digital manufacturing, multiscale modeling of structural adhesive joints, computational biomechanics, and computational design of nano-bio-devices.
