Welcome to the Computational Mechanics and Materials Laboratory (CMML) at the 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 problems related to additive manufacturing of materials, hierarchical materials, multifunctional composites, and image-based (CT, MRI) multiscale modeling of biological materials.

Please see Research and Publications for more details on our 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).
