Dr. Trisha Sain joined the Mechanical Engineering - Engineering Mechanics department at Michigan Tech August 2016 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to joining Michigan Tech she was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University, Sep 2013 - Aug 2016. She has Post-doctoral experience at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 2011-2013, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering (Joint Appointment) and Post-doctoral experience at Technical University of Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, 2009-2011.
Her research focuses on understanding the behavior of advanced engineering materials based on the principle of solid mechanics. The current emphasis is on-
- multiscale and coupled physics behavior of polymers and polymer composite materials;
- fracture, damage and impact behavior of materials;
- degradation of metallic implants in biomedical applications
- uncertainty quantification of physics based modeling.
