Welcome to the website of Prof. Vivek B. Shenoy's Research Group at the University of Pennsylvania.

Prof. Shenoy is the Eduardo D. Glandt President's Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He serves as the Director of the NSF Science and Technology Center for Engineering Mechanobiology (CEMB)

Professor Shenoy's research team focuses on developing theoretical concepts and numerical methods to understand the basic principles that control the behavior of both engineering and biological systems. A significant challenge in modeling the engineering and biological systems we study is that important processes involve coupling of both small-scale (atomic or single molecule) phenomena and long-range (elastic, electromagnetic) interactions over length scales of hundreds of nanometers. The goal of his group's work is to address these issues by combining atomic scale simulation methods with continuum or mesoscale theories and by adapting insights from condensed matter physics, solid mechanics, chemistry, materials science and applied mathematics.
