Research Interests:

The group is focused on novel nanofabrication techniques, flexible electronics, implantable electronics, and nanostructured thin films. We will be interested in the following directions:

1.Flexible electronics: fabrication, physics, and applications. We will be focused on highly stretchable, fatigue-free, transparent, and biocompatible metal networks which can be used as the electrodes for stretchable photoelectronics and implantable electronics.

2.Unconventional methods for micro-/nanofabrication by wrinkling, folding, and so forth. Our work may provide novel techniques for the fabrication of nanostructures with large area and high throughput.

3.Nanostructured thin films: synthesis, characterization, and applications in nano energy and self-cleaning surfaces.
