Research Interests:

Polymer hydrogels are widely used as synthetic extracellular matrices (ECMs).  Many recent studies have shown that the mechanical properties of these synthetic bio-scaffolds can greatly influence cellular response.  I am designing and preparing new hydrogel materials with controlled viscoelasticity to study complex cell-matrix interactions in various biological processes on related time scales.
