At MADLab, our goal is to make engineering structures safer, quieter, and more efficient. Our research mission is to generate new knowledge and tackle technological challenges at the intersection of structural mechanics, acoustics, and dynamics. We focus on understanding the fundamental mechanics of novel engineered material systems, including acoustic metamaterials, phononic structures, architected lattice structures, and stochastic foams. Using this knowledge, we develop performance-tailored solutions to critical engineering problems across various industries.
