The current focus of my research is on understanding and exploiting the dynamics of micro and nano scale mechanical structures in MEMS and NEMS devices. In particular, I am interested in the development of dynamic sensors at micro and nano scales for a host of applications in acoustics, ultrasonics, inertial navigation and medical diagnostics.
