Soft Matter Engineering Laboratory

Fundamentals and Applications in Healthcare and Energy Systems

Research in the Soft Matter Engineering Laboratory (SMEL) is led by Professor Ali Mohraz, and focuses on both fundamental problems concerning soft materials and their applications in human health and energy technologies. We use state-of-the-art experimental infrastructure, novel materials processing techniques, and modern computational tools to propel our research, and we make sure to have a lot of fun in the process.
