Bio] Prof. Glaucio Paulino is Raymond Allen Jones Chair and Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.   He received the M.S. degree in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from Cornell University in 1995, the M.S. degee in Civil Engineering (with Honors) from PUC-Rio, Brazil, and B.S degree in  Civil Engineering from University of Brasilia (UnB), Brazil.  He was a faculty member at Univerisity of California, Davis (1997-2001) and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2002-present), Acting Program Director in Nano and Bio Mechanics at NSF (2009-2010) and Program Director in Mechanics of Materials at NSF (2009-present), and joined Georgia Tech in 2015.  

Paulino's group's contributions in the area of computational mechanics spans development of methodologies to characterize deformation and fracture behavior of existing and emerging materials and structural systems, topology optimization for large-scale and multiscale/multiphysics problems, and origami.  Selected Active research area includes Polygonal Finite Elements and it's application to structural topology optimization, Reliability based design and Topology optimization, Topology optimization applied to design of high-rise buildings, Multiresolution Topology optimization, Potential-based cohesive model, Adaptive mech refinement and coarsening of Dynamic cohesive Fracture, Unified Library of nonlinear solution schemes, and Topological data structure for finite elevment mesh representation.
