I was working on multiscale mechanobiology at in-vitro cellular level (wet lab) and in-silico cellular and tissue level (computational) (Ph.D.). Now I am working on patient clinical trials on the biomechanical treatment for rehabilitation of carpal tunnel syndrome with ultrasound imaging processing evaluating nerve and tendon mobility as well as finite element modeling of carpal tunnel (Post-doc).

Research Interest

Cellular Biomechanics and Mechanobiology; Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials, Rehabilitation Engineering; Finite Element Modeling; Pressure Ulcers & Deep Tissue Injuries; Hand biomechanics, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Entrapment neuropathy; Dynamic ultrasound imaging, pattern reorganization
