Professor L. Catherine Brinson's research interests lie in the study of advanced material systems and developing new methods to characterize and model material behavior, particularly mechanics of materials, with emphasis on complex hierarchical materials and polymer-based nanostructured systems. Much of the group's recent and ongoing work entails merging concepts of data science into materials. Her lab’s research objective is to characterize and model advanced materials systems, bridging across scales, to develop new understanding of material mechanisms and transfer knowledge into FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) datasets towards novel material design. Major research approaches encompass nanoscale and bulk scale experimental characterization, as well as modeling and simulation of the behavior of materials, including both physics-based and machine-learning methods.
