At the Materials and Mechanics Lab in Stony Brook University, we are interested in studying the mechanical behavior of a wide variety of materials, especially during failure.

Some examples include fiber reinforced composites, rocks, polymer nanocomposites, soft composites and 3D printed materials. We employ a combination of numerical, experimental and theoretical approaches.

We strive to develop new and improved computational and analytical models, and experimental methods.The ultimate goal is to enable safer, reliable and efficient designs of components and structures in various engineering applications.


Thanks for your interest in our research. Get in touch with us for any questions or comments regarding our work and publications. We’d love to hear from you.
