Annie Ruimi completed his Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, University of California at Santa Barbara, 2005. M. S., Aerospace Engineering, San Diego State University, 1994. B.S., Aerospace Engineering, San Diego State University, 1993.
My research uses a combination of theoretical and computational tools to solve problems represented by rod-like structures with applications in medical simulations and drillstring dynamics. I also investigate the relationship between microstructure and material properties to design advanced (or smart) materials for automotive applications.
