My previous research focused on surface science and interfacial phenomena. Particularly, I was interested in fabrication of bio-inspired micropatterned polymeric systems with controlled adhesion, friction, and wetting. I have also experience in development of smart functional systems based on stimuli-responsive materials such as liquid crystal elastomers. My current research focuses on application of stimuli-responsive materials for the development of new generation of mobile robots at different scales to be employed in emerging biomedical technologies.
