Reconfigurable Metamaterials &
In our laboratory, we design, realize, and test mechanical metamaterials, flexible structures, and cellular materials with superior static and dynamic properties. We aim to create advanced mechanical systems with a broad range of applications by combining mechanical modeling, computational analysis, and advanced experimental techniques.
