Our group, the Micro & Nano Mechanics Lab, is headed by Professor Mattia Bacca at UBC, Vancouver, Department of Mechanical Engineering. Our research consists of developing mathematical and numerical models to explain microscopic physical phenomena in synthetic and biological materials and structural systems. The fundamental knowledge we generate can support and inspire the development of emerging technologies like reversible and repeatable adhesives, cell scaffolds, viral antibodies, robotic surgery, etc.
If you are interested in collaboration, 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), (iii) your transcripts. Due to the large volume of emails we receive, we will be able to respond only in case of interest. Important: we will consider only candidates with prior experience in solid mechanics (e.g. thesis, course project, publications).
