Research Mission

Welcome to Integrated Material Systems Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.This lab research focuses on exploring multiphysics interactions in materials with mixed electronic, ionic, optical and mechanical properties. We are motivated to address critical societal needs that can be solved through technological advances and hence our research products find application in the following areas - 

  • Sustainable mobility (batteries, lightweight structures, multifunctional automotive/aerospace structures, structural prognosis monitoring etc.,)
  • Healthcare (non invasive or minimally invasive sensors, actuators and disgnostic tools, etc.,)
  • Environmental economy (bioinspired approaches for carbondioxide conversion, desalination, etc.,)

This research supports the university's mission under the following discovery themes -  

  • Materials and Manufacturing for Sustainability
  • Health and Wellness
  • Energy and Environment


We acknowledge the support from our sponsors for various ongoing projects.
