        Armando Duarte is a Professor and Excellence Faculty Scholar at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is also a Fellow of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at UIUC. He has five years of industrial experience and served as a Visiting Scholar in 2011 at the University of Texas at Austin. Armando Duarte holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from The University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on computational mechanics and Generalized Finite Element Methods with focus on computational fracture mechanics, multi-scale and multi-physics problems such as sharp thermal gradients, and small cracks in aircraft structures. Dr. Duarte’s group has a history of collaborative research with industrial partners. They are currently developing computational methods and tools for the simulation of hydraulic fracturing in low-porosity reservoirs with many pre-existing natural fractures.
