Undergraduate Research Positions on the Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Lattices

Positions are currently available for undergraduate research assistants to work on a collaborative project between the Extreme Mechanics of Architected Materials group (Prof. Stavros Gaitanaros), the Topology Optimization group (Prof. James Guest) and the Applied Physics Laboratory (Dr. Elizabeth Congdon).

The project focuses on the mechanical properties of brittle cellular materials synthesized through additive manufacturing. Our goal is to combine experiments, modeling and design algorithms to create stronger architected materials that can sustain extremely high temperatures and compressive loads. These lightweight materials are ideal for thermal shielding of space structures and could be used in future space missions.

Interested students should contact Prof. Stavros Gaitanaros (stavrosg@jhu.edu) for more information.

 

The Johns Hopkins University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
