Soft Matter and Interdisciplinary Research

Our research group is interdisciplinary and focuses on problems that are often inspired by nature. Despite being an interdisciplinary group, our research projects have a strong mechanics flavor. In the mechanics domain, one of the key focus areas of our research group is behavior of matter that falls in between a traditional ‘viscous fluid’ and ‘solid’ – a class of matter often referred to as ‘soft matter’. The name ‘Soft Matter’ encompasses a diverse group of materials. A limited list of our research interests:

  • Non-Newtonian Fluids
  • Soft Robots
  • Microfluidics
  • Biocementation and its applications
