​​Welcome to Laboratory for Soft Intelligent Materials and Devices, at School of Optical and Electronic Information, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China.

Our interdisciplinary research interfaces on the engineering and biomedicine, including materials science, optoelectronics, mechanics, nanotechnology, and engineering. The focus of our group is the understanding and development of novel materials, devices and mechanism bridging the hard machine and soft human body. Taking advantage of cutting edge engineering, computing, simulations, and soft-matter technologies, we are dedicated to design and fabricate soft and smart devices and systems with extraordinary functions, addressing the challenges of capturing, transportation, manipulation of information in human body. Our research interest includes: design and manufacturing of soft intelligent materials, soft robotics, flexible electronics, and soft metamaterials. ​​
