Research Interests

Additive  manufacturing  could  significantly  improve  wearable  and  implantable  devices  by  better  mimicking  the  complexity  and  diversity  of  human  bodies,  yet  novel  processes  and  materials  are  needed  to  realize  this  potential. We use materials chemistry, additive manufacturing, as well as computational design and learning to produce new devices and materials whose structure is controlled from the nano- to the macro-scale for enhanced function.
