David M. Kamensky
Asst Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Kamensky's work addresses a central challenge of computational mechanics, namely, the difficulty of translating realistic, geometrically-complex problems into computational models. His research aims to streamline—or even automate—computational mechanics, by developing more geometrically-flexible analysis methods.
Kamensky was a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University and earned his Ph.D. at the University of Texas, Austin, before joining UC San Diego in 2019.
