Michael Mayer
Mechanical Engineering

I grew up in Durham, NC and attended Williams College where I received a B.A. in Mathematics. I am pursuing an MS/Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering under Marc Hodes at Tufts University. My research interests include physical mathematics and the application of superhydrophobic structured surfaces.

IGERT Research
Biomimetic technologies, such as superhydrophobic surfaces, have a variety of applications. I hope to research various possible applications in robotics for these structured surfaces. In addition, I am exploring various topics in physical mathematics, aiming to develop more robust analytical tools for researchers.
