Dr. Landis' research focuses on continuum modeling and numerical simulation of the mechanical, electrical, magnetic and thermal behavior of materials. His specific interests are on acitve/smart materials such as ferroelectrics and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys. He also has a broad range of interests in the mechanics of materials, including fracture mechanics, plasticity, micromechanics, composites, and finite element methods. He joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics in the spring 2007 semester.
