About Us

Our research aims at (i) engineering materials by synthesizing and assembling nanostructured building blocks into larger scales, (ii) modeling, understanding and tailoring the mechanical behavior of these materials and (iii) demonstrating new applications of these materials.

Examples of our work:

  • Design of  bio-inspired multi-functional material systems;
  • Synthesis and self-assembly of nanostructures;
  • Mechanics and dynamics of materials;
  • Building awesome manufacturing machines and fine mechanisms.
