My current research topics include viscoelastic behavior of cortical bone using nanoindentation at the nano level and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) at the macro-level, bone mineralization analysis using micro-CT and clinical cone beam CT (CBCT). My research includes the elastic, viscoelastic, and fracture mechanical testing, the utilization of imaging technique, micro-CT, CBCT, DMA and nanoindentation of bone at bone-implant interface, bone-scaffold constructs, and disease.
