MetaMat Research Group

Our research group focuses on developing new materials capable of responding to external stimuli by altering their properties in a predictable manner on demand. We are interested in current topics of reconfigurable mechanical metamaterials and bio-inspired materials, as well as fundamental issues of failure, instability, and wave propagation in materials. We engineer new materials and metamaterials by harnessing sophisticated structure-property relationships, while machine learning assists us in this task. We perform experimental, numerical, and theoretical studies, actively engaging in interdisciplinary collaborations with other research teams.

News

PhD call is closed

We have selected the best candidates to work on a project that bridges mechanical engineering and machine learning to develop new adaptive mechanical metamaterials.

New equipment

We received new equipment, including 3D printers, CCD camera, modal shaker, ICP accelerometers, and many other smaller things.

We have started

The research group has officially started. For the next five years, we are planning to do an amazing science contributing to the development of adaptive and autonomous materials.
