MEAM Seminar: “Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials”

Material properties are governed by the chemical composition and spatial arrangement of constituent elements. Over the past decade, the field of architected materials has sought to design, fabricate, and demonstrate […]

MEAM Seminar: “Force, Shape, and Motion in Collective Cell Migration”

Cells migrate collectively to form tissues, to heal wounds, and, in cancer, to metastasize. During these biological processes, the collective migration exhibits a transition from a solid-like state, wherein cell […]

MEAM Seminar: “Nanoparticle Heating for Therapeutics, Regenerative Medicine and Diagnostics”

Gold and iron oxide nanoparticles have unique and tunable properties that allow transduction of optical (light), or radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields to affect heating of biomaterials at multiple scales. This […]

MEAM Seminar: “Interfacial Soft Matter”

Surface tension plays a critical role in a wide range of biological, environmental, technological and geophysical settings. In this talk, I will present three different problems dealing with interfacial soft […]

MEAM Seminar: “Hairy Hydrodynamics”

Flexible slender structures in flow are everywhere. While a great deal is known about individual flexible fibers interacting with fluids, considerably less work has been done on fiber ensembles — […]

MEAM Seminar: “Fluid Mechanics and Turbulence in Extended Wind Farms”

In this presentation we discuss several properties of the flow structure and turbulence in the wind turbine array boundary layer (WTABL). This particular type of shear flow develops when the […]

MEAM/GRASP Seminar: “Geometric Biologically Inspired Robots that Span Industries from Medical to Manufacturing”

The animal kingdom is full of both human and non-human animals worthy of investigation, emulation and re-creation. As such, my research group has created a comprehensive research program focusing on […]

MEAM Seminar: “Elastomeric Materials for Autonomic Force Transmission, Optoelectric Sensing, and 3D Printing Soft Robots”

This talk will present multidisciplinary work from material composites and robotics. We have created new types of actuators, sensors, displays, and additive manufacturing techniques for soft robots and haptic interfaces. […]

MEAM Seminar: “Viewing Earth’s Surface as a Soft Matter Landscape”

The Earth’s surface is composed of a staggering diversity of particulate-fluid mixtures: dry to wet, dilute to dense, colloidal to granular, attractive to repulsive particles, laminar to turbulent flows, and […]

MEAM Seminar: “Stretching the Boundaries of Medical Robotics”

Abstract: My lab creates medical robots not only for minimally invasive surgery, but also for targeted drug delivery and for tissue regeneration. This talk will describe three of our technologies. […]
