Jose Munoz
Associate Professor of Mathematics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
Research area: Numerical Modelling

Main fields of interest: computational mechanics, numerical modeling of solids, contact mechanics, and biomechanics of cells and tissues. This involves numerical solution of constrained PDEs and optimization for discretized problems.

He develops finite element techniques, particle methods and vertex models, using forward and inverse analysis, and rheological models for active biomaterials. The main applications involve traction and stress force microscopy, mechanical analysis of multicellular systems, multibody systems.
