Our research is focused on the nanoscale characterization and fabrication of materials and systems. We are particularly interested in the nanomechanics of materials, surfaces and interfaces, including biological materials. Current projects include studies of surface chemical effects on mechanical deformation, machining damage in ceramics, the properties of diseased dental tissues and bones, and the synthesis of ultra-long nanofibers for biomedical and electronic device applications.
