Research

Prof. Sundaresan’s research group was established as ‘Integrated Material Systems Lab’ at Virginia Commonwealth University. This lab moved to The Ohio State University in Fall 2012 and is a single PI-directed research group in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.  In addition, this group participates as an individual contributor and collaborator in various research centers towards solving fundamental and translational engineering problems using smart materials .

A synopsis of selected research projects being carried out by researchers in Integrated Material Systems Lab is available in ‘Current Projects‘ page.
