- My research interests span from the study of cancer cell deformations to the most recent advances in bio-assistive soft robotics, incorporating diverse fields such as mechanics of soft matter, deformable electronics and adaptive structures, bio-inspired design, smart materials, and flexible sensors. I am equally interested in the realm of sensors and architectures with the induction of hydrogel and polymer-based multifaceted material functions that conform to and create an intimate matching with soft and non-planar body surfaces thus offering intriguing opportunities in biology and medicine.
- My long-term research interests lie at the intersection of Mechanics, Materials, Biology, and Medicine. Specifically, I am interested in understanding and designing soft materials with unprecedented mechanical properties such as extremely tough and strong, ultra-sensitive to stimuli, programmable, biocompatible, and bioactive to interface humans and machine and their intelligence. Also, my long arching research goal is to work in point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, low-cost medical device fabrication easily accessible to the common people from developing countries.
