Through a combination of analytical modeling, numerical simulation, and experiment, Yin Group’s research interests are on exploring fundamental mechanics of novel emerging materials and structures at all scales, as well as their broad applications in energy, environment, and healthcare. In particular, Yin Group’s current research focuses on mechanics and design of mechanical metamaterials for achieving unprecedented mechanical properties, harnessing mechanical instabilities in soft materials at small scale for multifunctionalities, as well as mechanics guided design of multifunctional soft machines.
