Matt Allen is a Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University. Prior to that he taught for 15 years in the department of Engineering Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from BYU, M. S. and PhD degrees from the Georgia Tech in 2005 and was a post-doc at Sandia National Laboratories. e has developed robust experimental/analytical substructuring methods, a new framework for identifying linear time-periodic systems, continuous-scan laser vibrometry methods, and model updating techniques for geometrically nonlinear systems based on nonlinear normal modes. Recently his work is concerned with reduced order models for structures with energy dissipation due to friction such as bolted joints and for thin structures such as aircraft skin panels which exhibit geometric nonlinearity.
