  Professor Maenghyo Cho majored in "Mechanics of Solids and Structures" and focused on the modeling and a finite element implementation of the laminated composite structures. Last fifteen years, Prof. Cho has focused on multiscale mechanics which connects different scale disciplines such as continuum mechanics, molecular dynamics and first principles calculations. Through the multiscale simulations, design and analysis of macroscopic/microscopic behaviors and scale-bridging techniques have been developed for various smart materials such as nanocomposites, lithium secondary batteries, shape memory alloys.
  Recently, Professor Cho is interested in a multi-physics phenomenon in a photo-responsive polymer which causes mechanical deformations from light. The mechanism of this phenomenon is investigated by the multi-scale/multi-physics analysis. Based on the mechanistic understanding, his group is working on the macroscopic light control and design for soft robot element.
