Bojan Guzina's major areas of research are in the field of elastic wave propagation with applications to nondestructive site and material characterization. Projects accomplished include analytical modeling of seismic wave motions in a multi-layered solid, development of a rigorous boundary integral equation (BIE) method for visco-elastodynamic problems, and formulation of a BIE-based imaging algorithm for 3D seismic identification of subterranean objects. Current research interests are focused on: (i) resolution of the inverse scattering problems arising in non-intrusive site characterization and underground object detection, (ii) development of novel field testing techniques.
