The Micro & Nano Mechanics Lab is headed by Professor Mattia Bacca, as part of the Applied Mechanics Division in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UBC, Vancouver. Its research activity consists in developing mathematical and numerical models aimed at understanding the physics of materials at the micrometric and nanometric length scales. The fundamental knowledge here created is directed toward the development of emerging technologies like bioinspired dry-adhesives, novel soft materials, graphics simulation of soft biological tissue, robotic surgery etc.
If you are interested in collaborations, just send an email to Professor Mattia Bacca (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are a student looking for a job/training/visit opportunity, in order to be considered, please attach (i) CV, (ii) one brief letter of interest/motivation which includes ideas and original thoughts on your research plan (maximum 1 page, or it can just be the body of the email), and (iii) your transcripts. Due to the high volume of emails, you will receive a response only in case of interest.
