The mission of the Microstructure Testing and Analysis Laboratory is to advance the knowledge on the mechanics of engineering materials and biological materials under consideration of micro-scale effects and processes. Our research is concerned with the relationships between materials architecture, constitutive description, and the overall function of architectured and microstructured materials.

We also collaborate with many industry partners, as part of the Indiana Consortium on Simulation-Based Engineering of Materials and Structures (ICSEMS).

Thomas is part of the Solid Mechanics area in the School of Mechanical Engineering. Learn more about other Solid Mechanics faculty throughout Purdue University.
