Pinchasik Lab

Biomimetic Mechanical Systems and Interfaces

School of Mechanical Engineering

Tel-Aviv University, Israel


Our research group is part of the Mechanical Engineering department at Tel-Aviv University. Our research focus is on biomimetics and the use of smart materials and interfaces by insects and reptiles. We seek to understand the fundamentals of liquid collection and transport, mechanics of soft materials, and to train the next generation of mechanical engineers and materials scientists. We take a multidisciplinary approach- students and postdocs in our lab come from a variety of backgrounds: mechanical engineering, physics, biology, chemistry and materials science. Therefore, students and postdocs in our lab will gain experience in multiple techniques and enjoy the freedom to construct custom-built mechanical characterization and materials fabrication methods.
