Our research is focused on developing methods and computational tools for engineering design.  Our research emphasizes design for additive manufacturing; simulation-based design of complex products, materials, and systems; and design methodologies for supporting innovation, customization, and sustainability. 


Our mission is to empower the next generation of technical leaders through research and teaching that promotes critical thinking, innovation, curiosity, and ethical decision-making. Our courses are designed to help students learn to negotiate solutions to open engineering design problems using systematic design methods and appropriate computational, analytical, and experimental techniques.
