Celia's interests are focused on the multiscale modeling of materials. She works on the development of new techniques for scale transition as well as on the use of existing techniques to understand inelastic and non-equilibrium processes in materials. Examples of her research include modeling of plasticity in the large deformation setting, understanding of fast phase transformations for applications to new memory devices and developing multiscale models for ductile failure. Celia's research is very interdisciplinary and combines tools from continuum mechanics, statistical physics and applied mathematics.
