Celia's interests are focused on the multiscale modeling and simulation 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, developing multiscale tools for modeling and simulating elastic metamaterials, and understanding fast phase transformations for applications to new memory devices. Celia's research is very interdisciplinary and combines tools from continuum mechanics, statistical physics and applied mathematics.
