Research Interests

Multidisciplinary research and teaching that are focused on materials science and engineering, particularly multifunctional structural materials (with functions including self-sensing, self-powering and vibration damping), electromagnetic shielding materials, and thermal interface materials (for microelectronic cooling). Other topics include three-dimensional printing, dielectric conductors and interface-derived viscoelasticity.
