Philip L. Clarke, a native of Nassau Bahamas, is a graduate research assistant and mechanical engineering doctoral (PhD) candidate at the University of Tennessee Space Institute (Tullahoma, TN). Philip attended high school at St. Augustine’s College (Nassau, Bahamas) graduating in 2006 with honours and obtained a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering (Cum Laude) from Florida International University (Miami, FL) in the Fall of 2011.
Currently at the University of Tennessee, Philip is currently working to complete his dissertation related to computational fracture mechanics research on the optimization of Lithium ion Battery components to reduce mechanical failures and in turn increase their lifespan. Apart from his primary research endeavours, Philip is assisting in the development of an in-house Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software utilizing Space-time Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods (SDGFEM) for general numerical problems.
