Research Interests: 

The Daraio lab is primarily interested in developing a physical understanding of the mechanics of structured, ordered and disordered solid media at length scales ranging from nanometers to meters. The group studies the fundamental connections between structure and function in different physical domains (temperature sensitivity, electrical conductivity, biological interactions, etc.). The ultimate goal is to exploit this understanding for the creation of new materials and devices for engineering applications ranging from wearable medical devices to shock and vibration absorption.
