In our group, we combine theoretical, computational and experimental methods of solid mechanics to study the link between microstructure and macroscopic properties of a variety of materials with diverse applications in science and technology. Our primary focus is on the impact of small-scale instabilities on the controllable macroscopic performance of solids and structures. We develop new scale-bridging theory, advanced multiscale computational techniques, and state-of-the-art experimental methods to explore design strategies for novel materials with tunable, exceptional properties.
