Welcome to the Group on Nanomechanics & Nanotribology at the Institute of Continuum Mechanics at Leibniz Universität Hannover. We focus on using advanced experimental techniques like Nanoindentation, backed with computational models to understand the nonlinear world of soft materials and interfaces.

Interfaces are existent in all systems and critical to their behavior. For ex: Walking is a result of frictional interaction between the feet & ground; Lubrication involves contact of two surfaces across a thin film interfaces; Building foundations involve interaction between the granular materials and the foundation piles; seismic ruptures etc. Friction, Contact and Interfacial mechanics play a primary role in all material and structural behavior. ​

More detailed information on our ongoing research is available in our Research section.
