Research interests

Research interests

The current research interests in our group focus on the mechanics of nanocomposites, nanodevices, energy absorption structures and materials (EASM). We use multiscale numerical, experimental and theoretical approaches to investigate the various research frontiers in these field. Examples of our recent research include multiscale modeling graphene-drived materials such as grpahene oxide paper, graphene fiber and graphene foam. We aim to develop high performance and multifunctional nanocomposites and EASM which can be widely used in the aerospace, aeronautical, automotive industry and defense engineering. More detail can be viewed in Laboratory for Material and Environmental Mechanics (MEM Lab) in ICAM.
