Materials and Structures Laboratory
Welcome to Materials and Structures Laboratory led by Professor Qiming Wang (CV) at Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of University of Southern California. Our research is focused on manufacturing and understanding functional materials and structures that can potentially address grand engineering challenges from resilient infrastructure to clean water. We take experimental, theoretical and computational approaches to study cutting-edge problems in three core themes (see Research):
