Valdevit’s research is in the general area of mechanics of materials and structures. He has worked on the optimal design of multi-functional sandwich structures for aerospace applications (hypersonic vehicles in particular), and the thermo-mechanical characterization of organic substrates for the electronics packaging industry (in collaboration with IBM Research). Currently, his primary research goal is the optimal design, fabrication and experimental characterization of micro-architected materials with superior combination of properties.
