Research Interests

Cellular mechanobiology, biomechanics, tissue engineering, and biomedical engineering. Approaches integrate experimental and computational cell mechanics with state-of-the-art quantitative cellular and molecular biology. Current applications include stem cell-based tissue engineering; mechanobiological studies of heart valve calcification; and the development of novel technologies for high throughput mechanobiology.
