Soft surfaces with unique wetting and adhesion properties.
My previous research includes wetting phenomena and wettability characterization, the design and fabrication of surfaces with special wetting properties, and their application to physical processes in microassembly. I’m currently interested in understanding the interplay between surface adhesion and wettability, and my goal is to design surfaces that have unique adhesion and wetting properties simultaneously.

Nature can be an inspiration for innovations in science. One such inspiration comes from the gecko lizard which can climb on walls and ceilings of almost any surface texture. Rather than using its claws or sticky substances, the gecko is able to stick to smooth surfaces through dry micro/nanofibrillar adhe...
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
