This group study Mechanical Behavior of Biomaterials. The size scale varies from macro to nano meters. Research methods include experiments, computational simulation and modeling. We would like to apply the fundamental understanding upon mechanical behavior of structural materials into design of damage resistant biomedical devices and applications, such as dental implants, endovascular stents, tissue scaffold and so on. We learn from nature, reveal scientific insights of both biological and biomimetic materials and provide novel structural designs in an multidisciplinary research framework. We are constantly looking for Research Associates and Ph.D. students in the area of engineering mechanics, materials science, applied physics, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, etc.
