Area(s): Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine & Mathematics

Specialist Subject(s): Engineering - Computational

Vice Principal (Research & Knowledge Exchange), University of Glasgow

Professor Pearce has undertaken research in computational engineering. He focuses on modelling complex material behaviour and multi-physics problems. He has applied these techniques to various fields, including civil, nuclear, manufacturing, and biomedical engineering. His work involves novel numerical methods, theoretical advances, and new software tools. He has addressed critical, life-limiting structural integrity issues, most recently applied to civil nuclear reactors in the UK, thereby supporting their ongoing safe operation and securing low-carbon baseload electricity supply.
