Welcome to the Nanoscale Mechanics and Materials Lab at UC Irvine
We are a research group working at the interface of mechanical engineering, materials science, and physics. Our work focuses on uncovering new structure-property relationships in advanced nanomaterials for next-generation structural, electronic, and energy components, as well as increasing the reliability and lifetime of these materials. To achieve these goals, we use a combination of cutting-edge experimental, characterization, and computational techniques.
Current areas of interest include nanocrystalline metals and alloys, thin film materials, and the study of interfaces at the atomic level. Click the images below or see our Research page for more information.
