The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.

We are a research group with the Advanced Design Prototyping Technologies Institute (ADaPT) at Griffith University. We are interested in developing novel high-performance composite and auxetic materials. We try to adopt and extend computational approaches to simulate the material behaviour and improve our understanding.
We aim to leverage the technology in high-performance materials to improve the quality of human life, develop the industry, and contribute to the Australian economy. We envision high-quality products that are supported by state-of-the-art research to diminish the gap between industry and academia.
Our focus is on developing energy dissipating devices using novel high-performance composite and auxetic materials. We use Industry 4.0 technologies such as additive manufacturing and artificial intelligence to improve the quality of our designs. Our current focus is improving the energy-absorbing characteristics of multi-layer structures.Read more about our Research
