Research Interests

Research interest is in three overlapping areas: bendable microelectromechanical structures (MEMS), microfluidics, and sensor networks. Am exploring flexible structures with more than one stable shape, because they can perform ultra-low-power actuation and sensing. Also looking to these compliant structures for new electrode geometries in microfluidic lab-on-a-chip systems.
