“The joy of discovery is certainly the liveliest that the mind of man can ever feel.” — Claude Bernard (1813–1878), French physiologist.
The research in our lab is focused on the development of innovative micro- and nano-scale devices, mostly through biomimetic and bioinspired design paradigms, to enable new or advanced applications in prosthetics, surgery, microrobotics, microassembly and other areas. As part of this effort, our research also seeks to understand the fundamental mechanisms at play in physical and biological systems at small scales. The current thrust areas of development in the lab include: 1. Neural Interfaces and BioMEMS, 2. Piezoelectric MEMS Transducers, and 3. Compliant Micromechanisms and Robotics.
