Our research focuses at the
interaction of mechanics (solid, fluid, thermal), materials, and
manufacturing. Our scientific investigation has been carried out
experimentally, theoretically, and numerically. Detailed characterizations
of material responses to processing are an integral part of our endeavor.
Our effort has been focused on (1) advanced laser materials processing and
(2) advance robotic health care.
