Jon Bass

Jon M. Bass earned his Ph.D. in engineering mechanics from The University of Texas at Austin. He is assistant vice president of research and the associate director at ICES, a role that allows him to help manage the day-to-day operations of the Institute. In addition, he is a member of the Multiscale Modeling Group led by Professor J. Tinsley Oden, contributing to ICES’ multi-scale modeling research.

During his tenure in industry, Bass functioned as principal investigator and/or project manager on research projects in fluid, thermal, and structural mechanics. Additionally, he participated in commercial software development. In July 2003, he was selected as the first deputy director of ICES, and in 2007 assumed the role of assistant vice president of research.

His current research interests include computational fluid and solid mechanics, multiscale modeling, dynamic data-driven application systems, hp-adaptive finite element methods, and scientific computing. Since joining ICES, he has participated in a number of research projects, including “A Computational Infrastructure for Reliable Computer Simulations” (NSF), “Adaptive Multi-Scale Modeling Based on Goal-Oriented Error Estimation and Control” (DOE), and “A Dynamic Data-Driven System for Laser Treatment of Cancer” (NSF).

Bass is an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
