ASU KEDtalk: Resilience in materials and in life

For decades, ASU's Aditi Chattopadhyay has endeavored to create responsive, durable materials


March 30, 2020

No stranger to resistance, Regents Professor Aditi Chattopadhyay has forged her own path in aerospace engineering to design resilient materials capable of withstanding the rigors of the world. Her tenacity has informed not only novel materials, but her teaching ethos and the culture of her lab, the Adaptive Intelligent Materials and Systems Center.
