Welcome to the cutting-edge research group “Multiphysics Multiscale Design for Manufacturing,” where we delve into the exciting intersection of artificial intelligence and the design, optimization, and implementation of multiphysics and multiscale systems. This interdisciplinary lab is at the forefront of innovation, employing advanced technologies to tackle complex challenges across various manufacturing application domains.

Our primary research interest lies in harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to revolutionize the design and optimization of multiphysics and multiscale systems. By seamlessly integrating digital simulations and models, we aim to develop robust solutions that address real-world problems. One of the key aspects of our research is the implementation of digital twins for multiphysics systems, allowing us to create virtual counterparts that mirror the behavior of physical systems, enabling accurate predictions and informed decision-making.

The application areas of our research program are diverse and impactful. We focus on multifunctional composites, exploring their potential in areas such as photoacoustics, optics, anti-biofouling, superhydrophobic surfaces, electromagnetic interference (EMI) mitigation, flexible electronics, daytime radiative cooling for buildings, and photovoltaic (PV) panels. Additionally, our research extends to the 3D heterogeneous integration of electronics, aiming for high performance and reliability in electronic systems. We also research the development of next-generation smart materials tailored for ultrasound and piezoelectric applications, pushing the boundaries of what is currently possible in these fields. Lastly, our research extends to in-situ resource utilization, supporting the in-space manufacturing necessary for Lunar and Mars exploration.

As we embark on this scientific journey, our goal is to contribute groundbreaking solutions that not only advance the field of multiphysics and multiscale systems but also pave the way for transformative applications in various industries. Join us as we explore the limitless possibilities at the intersection of artificial intelligence and the physical world.
