We are honored to receive the CAREER award from the Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MoMS) program, to continue our explorations on the mechanics of self-architected materials.
Rachel Sun has joined the Portela Group after graduating from Caltech, a brief internship at Tesla, and receiving the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! She will be exploring the mechanics and fabrication of reconfigurable metamaterials. Welcome, Rachel!

We are proud to share this collaborative effort with the Nelson Group at MIT.
We were recognized for our Carlos' presentation at MRS Spring 2021
Very happy to see our students pursue their passion! Pictured is our very own Somu Dhulipala on his long-awaited Zero-G flight. Way to go!
Dr. Kai has joined the Portela Group as a Postdoctoral Associate. He will apply his ultrafast optics expertise to study the mechanical response of architected materials fabricated in our group.
The Portela Group is happy to announce that we have received and installed our Nanoscribe tool in state-of-the-art facilities at MIT.nano. We look forward to exploring new architectures with this tool.
Somayajulu Dhulipala has just joined the Portela Group. He has successfully completed his master's thesis at MIT MechE and will be exploring experimental and computational aspects of self-assembled architected materials.
