The objective of my project is to explore the mechanism by which silicon reduces the BDT temperature with decreasing size. In addition, we try to understand the role of micro-mechanics on the behavior of freestanding tissue in-vitro. Therefore, we design micro-testing devices for studying the mechanical behavior of semiconductors, soft bio-materials and living tissues. Research activities include cleanroom level microfabrication, in-situ mechanical characterization of micro/nano- scale materials in SEM and confocal microscopy, atomic force microscopy, Finite Element analysis, and Molecular Dynamics simulations.
