The BIOINSPIRED MATERIALS LAB is an interdisciplinary research group working on biomaterials science, polymer chemistry, soft matter physics, and nanotechnology, with focus on exploring biological and bioinspired functional materials to develop solutions for healthcare, robotics, and sustainability. Particularly, we are interested in multiscale modeling of soft biomaterials (from molecular dynamics to continuum models) and learning/control methods in microrobotics.
