Our research addresses problems in multi-physics in order to characterize robot locomotion in heterogeneous environments. We develop physical models and expeditious computational solutions to address mobility in fluid and granular environments.
A graduate level position (potentially two) is available to the applicants with a strong background in one or more of the following research areas: (1) computational multibody dynamics; (2) granular materials; (3) robotics; (4) fluid-solid interaction. All applicants should demonstrate competence in numerical analysis and preferably programming with C++. To learn how to apply or for more information, contact us.
