Welcome to the Advanced Materials and Mechanical Systems Laboratory (AMMS Lab)  in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at San Antonio.


The main research interest of the AMMS Lab is to advance in the design and synthesis of advanced materials and mechanical systems by integrating concepts of bioinspired design and architected materials. To achieve this goal, our research approach combines computational simulations, theoretical analysis, fabrication, and experimental testing.

Applications of interest are in broad areas, including healthcare, defense, robotics, civil infrastructure, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering.
