Research Opportunities and Interests

NIST-NRC Postdoctoral Fellowship: 2-year fellowship at NIST, US citizens only, Application deadlines are Feb. 1 and Aug. 1, requires a 3000-word research proposal

Contact me if interested in writing proposal on the experiments and modeling of: 

  • Photo-cured polymers, composites, adhesives and coatings
  • Chemical physics and mechanical aspects of polymer degradation process
  • Mineralization and demineralization of bone
  • Coupling of reaction diffusion with mechanical stress
  • Cell (or bacteria)-material and cell-cell adhesive interactions, cellular mechanics, single-cell force microscopy, toxicity
  • Scaffold-based Bone Regeneration (emerging areas of science in oral health care), physical and mechanical propertiesof scaffolds, biological interaction between dental follicle cells and scaffolds

NIST campus sites on beautiful grounds in Gaithersburg located 20 miles from Washington, D.C. The pleasant surroundings and the wide range of technical expertise and disciplines represented by the 3000 NIST personnel ensure a stimulating environment that encourages scientific growth and achievement.
