Welcome to our Lab at ASU. Our research is primarily focused on the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials for structural and functional applications. We develop new synthesis techniques for thin films and investigate their synthesis-structure-property relationships. The overarching goal is to engineer the microstructure of thin films to enhance their mechanical properties and functionality. Our lab also has an active interest in creating soft, polymer-based micro platforms that can be used as scaffolds for biohybrid devices or for studying cellular mechanics.
