Current Appointment
Senior Research Scientist, Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering (Platform: Adaptive Materials Technology)

Research Areas
1. bio-inspired design and synthesis of soft material-based adaptive and dynamic systems for energy-efficient shading and thermal control for buildings, tunable optics and photonics, and autonomous actuation systems.
2. the control of nucleation and growth of semi-crystalline organic materials on non-planar substrate and multi-functional hierarchical micro/nanostructures for energy and environmental applications.
3. dynamically switched instability-induced surface wrinkles and their use in mechano-responsive optics, adaptive shading, and anti-fouling applications.
4. nanostructured superhydrophobic and slippery surface coatings for ice-repellent surfaces and biomedical devices.

Teaching Experience
