We emphasize the fundamental insights from solid mechanics, material engineering, and thermophysics to the design and fabrication of soft electronics, multifunctional materials, and other high-performance materials. We use these fundamental insights to impact critical domains such as soft robotics, wearable devices, and biomedical devices, and to better the interactions between human, machine and environment. Our research has been supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), and UNR.
We are located at Palmer Engineering Building on the beautiful serene campus of UNR, which sits in the northern part of Reno, the Biggest Little City in the World. Group activities and research updates can be found on Page News, which are highlighted below:
