Emmanouela Filippidi, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Researcher at MRL and Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, UC Santa Barbara


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Megan Valentine. I started my work involved with the Bio-Insprired Wet Adhesion collaboration at the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL) of the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB). I am currently the recipient of an Otis-Williams Post-doctoral fellowship which enables me to pursue a project with the aim of building soft porous materials suitable for biological glues and eventually adhesive tendon and ligament replacements.

Here is my latest CV (as of November 2017).

Here is the example's pdf result.


My research focuses on the structural analysis of the plaques, the thin film adhesives that marine mussels use to attach to rocks and to each other and to most surfaces. I also work in the development of mussel-inspired synthetic elastomers that mimic the ingenious techniques mussels use to create tougher, energy-absorbing permanent adhesives under water.

I acknowledge generous financial support from the MRSEC program of the National Science Foundation and the Otis Williams Postdoctoral Fellowship
