We seek to understand and exploit interesting characteristics of nanoscale objects, such as nanowires, nanoridges, nanoholes, and nano-membranes as well as their hierarchical hybrid combinations. Our aim is to explore novel electronic, photonic, and biological responses, even surface characteristics of these materials. We are also developing new ‘integrated technology’ and biomimetic approaches for actuating devices containing nanostructures. This work combines fundamental studies with forward-looking engineering efforts. Our current research focuses on nanophotonics, soft robotics, non-wettable surfaces, nano/bio therapeutics, 2D materials-based electronic devices and 3D nano-scaffolds, especially with an emphasis on bio-inspired and nano/bio integrated technologies. These efforts are highly multidisciplinary, and combine expertise from nearly every traditional fields of technical studies.
Opening We are looking for highly motivated M. S., Ph. D. students, and Postdocs.
