Current Research Interests

Lab News & Research Highlights

Experimental mechanics with an emphasis on (1) blunt injury and wound healing mechanisms utilizing 3D tissue simulant and cell culture subjected to rapid mechanical loading and (2) microstructure-property relations of nano/micro-materials for manufacturing and energy applications utilizing in situ materials characterization in scanning and transmission electron microscopes.


Yisha, our FURI student, has received the Blowers Engineering Scholarship (2021). Congratulations on her achievement! 


Our manuscript, An Axially Continuous Graphene-Copper Wire for High Power Transmission: Thermo-electrical characterization and mechanisms, has been accepted by Advanced Materials (2021)
