Khiem’s research focuses on the theory of multiscale materials and the associated numerical tools. He completed his doctoral degree at Ruhr University of Bochum in 2016 and subsequently undertook post-doctoral positions at University of Stuttgart, Helmholtz Research Centre for Materials Science, and ETH Zurich before joining University of Glasgow in 2022. Before 2016, he conducted research on Whitham modulation theory for nonlinear dispersive waves, a sub-branch of applied mathematics. In his post-doc period, he focused on two areas of computational mechanics: (i) data-driven computational mechanics and (ii) two-scale computational homogenization for multiphysics coupled materials at finite strains. His present research is aimed at understanding materials across scales and designing new functional materials. Current projects focus on studying metamaterials in both quasi-static and dynamic regimes using the two-scale computational homogenization. The two-scale computational procedures are implemented by the FFT-based methods in coupled with the standard finite element methods. At the same time, he is active in the field of data-driven computational mechanics. The primary tools are optimization methods and artificial neural networks.
