Research Summary

Our research mainly spans from experimental and computational biomechanics to mechanical behaviour of biological tissue, particularly in understanding the relationship between tissue hierarchical structures at multiple length scales (ranging from organ down to cellular level) and their physiological as well as pathological conditions. Our research is highly interdisciplinary and at the interface of engineering, materials science and biomedicine. [Find more...]
