Muhammad Rahman

Research Areas

Dr. Rahman’s academic interest lies in interdisciplinary materials science research, using an engineering and biology perspective to design and fabricate ‘Nature-inspired-Structures’. He focuses on structure, property and performances relationship among the novel combinations of materials from nano-to macro-scale. He aims to develop multifunctional structures with an emphasis on sustainable design (e.g., hierarchical assembly, topology optimization), materials (e.g., biologic materials, nanocomposites, materials from wastes) and manufacturing (e.g.,3D printing) for a variety of applications, including load-bearing structures, food, textiles, energy and environment.
