Welcome to the Bertoldi Group at Harvard University. In our research, we combine theoretical, computational and experimental methods to gain deeper insight into the non-linear behavior of materials and structures. Guided by theoretical and numerical analysis, we exploit material and geometric non-linearities to design novel materials with tunable exceptional properties, and we seek to create and test such materials.
