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 multiphysics phenomenon in a photo-responsive
polymer which causes mechanical deformations from light. The mechanism of this phenomenon
is investigated by the multiscale/multiphysics analysis. Based on the mechanistic
understanding, his group is working on the macroscopic light control and design for soft
robot element.
