The Biomimetic Materials Laboratory

Biomimetics (also known as biomimicry or bionics) is the transfer of technology from nature to engineering. By understanding how natural materials, tissues, systems or devices operate in their natural environment, we can engineer better materials, system and devices with higher efficiency, higher performance, lower weight. Our lab focuses on biomimetic materials, with two missions:

  • Structure and Mechanics of natural materials
  • Modeling, fabrication and testing of new bio-inspired materials
