My Research Interest

 –  Systematic investigation on manufacturing, processing-structure-property relationships in adaptive structures, particularly NiTi, NiTiHf, NiTiCu, CoNiAl, NiMnGa shape memory alloys (SMAs),

–  Cyclic thermomechanical experiments and multi-scale in-situ and ex-situ material  characterization (using digital image correlation (DIC), scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) etc.) ,

–  Additive manufacturing (AM) 

–  Modeling and position/force control of SMA based solid-state actuator systems, 

–  Soft robotics, grippers, mechatronics, biomedical, biomechatronic and underwater applications of shape memory alloys.
