Research interests

My research interests revolve around mechanics and materials innovation & design with a focus on multiscale and multifunctional attributes, particularly in the context of additive manufacturing (AM) towards energy efficient and sustainable applications. Our current efforts focus on bioinspired and integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) approaches for the design of advanced multifunctional materials and composites. Our group’s strength in combining theory, computations and experiments has led to several novel contributions, for e.g., 3D printed compliance-tailored multilayers.
