Welcome to MultiScale Mechanics Lab!

About us

Our research interest lies at the interface of solid mechanics and materials science with a special focus on the development of structure-property relationships across multiple length scales. In order to carry out this we strive for a multiscale research vision that seamlessly combines computational and experimental tools to provide necessary insights to improve mechanical performance of structural alloys.
