Combine picture of fracture flow and cell mechanics
Tissue engineering

Welcome to the Vernerey Research Group. We are an interdisciplinary team working across the fields of mechanics, physics, and materials science to elucidate the non-equilibrium of soft materials. We develop arrays of multiscale theoretical and computational approaches to link the molecular/mesoscopic structure to the out-of-equilibrium behavior of soft matter, with applications in bio-engineering, cell mechanics and active materials. Our current work ranges from fundamental to applied research with focus on:

1. Mechanics, adhesion and fracture of polymers with dynamic bonds.

2. Mechanics and dynamics of active and programmable matter. 

3. Cell Mechanics.
