Welcome to the Garcia Research Group. We study granular materials and granular systems. Granular and particulate materials represent some of the most heavily manipulated materials in our society. A fundamental understanding of their behavior at the scale of individual grains or particles has wide-ranging benefits in several fields including civil engineering, geology, additive manufacturing, and planetary exploration. Please take a look at the sections of this website to learn more about us and our interests.
