James Weaver, Wyss Institute Senior Research Scientist, presents during the HUBweek Open Doors program. James will speak about
Nature produces a remarkable diversity of mineralized composites that often exceed the performance of their modern engineering analogs. Despite significant research into the structure-function relationships of these biological material, there is a lack of information about the functional roles of many components of these hierarchies. Join us to learn about the technique of multi-material additive manufacturing as a tool to unravel the complexities of a wide range of biological materials including high strength composites, photonic architectures, and low-drag surface coatings.
