Soft Materials and Interfaces @ Cincinnati
! We're moving to Cincinnati in January 2023 !
Our research is broadly focused on the physical and mechanical behavior of soft materials and interfaces, with an emphasis on smaller length scales. Current efforts are centered around adhesion, friction, wetting, capillary suspensions, and dynamics near soft interfaces. As a group, we strive to gain fundamental understanding of soft materials, to think critically about challenges in soft matter science, and to train ourselves to become the next generation of scientists and engineers. Potential applications for our work are diverse, from bioinspired adhesives and advanced coatings to biomaterials and soft devices. Members of our group gain experience in several experimental techniques, including atomic force microscopy, confocal and fluorescence microscopy, and custom-built mechanical characterization and materials fabrication methods.
