Professor Srivastava’s group conducts experimental and computational modeling research to study the role of fundamental mechanics in applications ranging from the biomedical sciences to large scale engineering structures. Current areas of interest are:

  1. Hydrogel and polymer mechanics for novel drug delivery and tissue engineering
  2. Cell mechanics for early disease detection and healing
  3. Deformation and failure response of materials in severe environment
  4. Bioinspired hierarchical materials
