Professor Bower is a member of the Solid Mechanics group in the School of Engineering. He works with colleagues and students to develop and apply computer simulations to model the mechanical properties of materials. Applications of current interest include lightweight materials and engineered surfaces for automotive and aerospace applications, as well as microelectronic materials.
Professor Bower was educated at the University of Cambridge, and was a University Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at Cambridge before joining Brown as an assistant professor in 1991. He currently serves as co-director (with Dr. Mark Verbrugge of GM) of the Brown/General Motors Collaborative Research Laboratory in Computational Materials Research. He is also the author of a (free) electronic solid mechanics textbook published at http://solidmechanics.org/
