Design and Fabrication of Active Bio-hybrid Microsystems for Applications in Biology and Medicine.
My primary research focus is to develop functional micro/nanofabricated systems for fundamental biology and translational medicine applications. My previous research at CWRU included engineering blood vessel mimicking microchannels to investigate blood cell and endothelial wall interactions and developing point-of-care platforms for diagnosis and monitoring of blood disorders. In MPI-IS, I am interested in bio-hybrid mobile microrobotic systems with intelligent control schemes for in-vitro and in-vivo micro-manipulation, biosensing, and drug delivery applications.

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
