Research Interests

  • materials science and mechanics of natural and biological protein materials (materiomics)
  • how protein materials define our body and how they fail catastrophically (fracture, deformation, disease)
  • large-scale atomistic modeling
  • protein based materials and biopolymers
  • interaction of chemistry and mechanics
  • bridging chemical scales to continuum theories of materials
  • modeling of bio-nano-materials phenomena
  • multiple-scale simulation
  • development and use of multi-scale simulation tools
