We are very interested in pursuing the application of continuum mechanics-based simulation into structural/energy/enviromental materials with interesting structures under various thermal/mechanical/chemical conditions. In particular, here are the descriptions of research plans in the near future.

1. Investigating mechanical/diffusional behavior of nanoporous metal-based lithium-ion batteries

2. High temperature materials with a unique structure

3. Correlate the mechanical properties and the corresponding functionalities of periodic cellular materials under various deformation states

Based on them, we aim to understand more complex issues of novel materials and even serve as design guideline in fabricating novel materials having a series of useful functions for a wide range of applications.
