Research: My research interests are centered on the microscale mechanical characterization of biological tissues and biomimetic materials. Accurate characterization of these types of materials is critical to understanding the influence of different pathologies on tissues mechanical properties, as well as developing novel therapeutic treatments (e.g., tissue engineering scaffolds for cartilage repair).
