Jamie is an integrated code developer at LLNL primarily working on ALE3D, a large-scale multi-physics code supporting the WCI program. Specifically, she focuses on nonlinear implicit solid mechanics including developing a modern 3D structural element capability to support complex mission analysis efforts within NIF. She also develops a new cardiac mechanics finite element package using MFEM, a high-order finite element framework developed within CASC, to explore potential solutions for modernizing production-scale engineering codes.
Current areas of interest include integrated multi-physics production code development, computational cardiac mechanics, high order finite element methods, nonlinear solid mechanics, laser-material interaction modelling, and modern object-oriented high-performance computing.
