Research Interests

Mechanics of biological and bio-inspired systems, brain mechanics, data-driven methods, advanced (meta)materials and (meta)structures, material design, and mathematics of materials and structures.


Professor (Amir)Hossein Salahshoor came to Duke from Caltech, where he conducted his postdoctoral studies. Prior to that, and pursuant to his undergraduate studies at the University of Tehran, he obtained his Ph.D in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech, along with an MS in Mathematics. His research interests broadly lie at the intersection of mechanics of materials and structures, computational and data science, biology, and applied mathematics, whereby focusing on developing data-driven and computational frameworks to predict, control, and engineer the behavior of complex material systems, he aims to address mechanistic challenges in sustainability and health.
