Welcome to the Computational Mechanics and Materials Laboratory (CMML) at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth! The broad aim of our research is to develop theoretical and computational methods combined with experiments for the assessment, design, optimization and manufacturing of novel materials and structures in various applications. In particular, we are interested in novel composites, hierarchical materials and lightweight structures, soft and multifunctional materials, flexible and deployable structures, and image-based (CT, MRI) multiscale modeling of biological materials.

Please see Research and Publications for more details on our recent research projects.

Prospective graduate and undergraduate students, visiting scholars or research partners interested in our lab are welcome to contact Dr. Jun Li (jun.li@umassd.edu).
