Areas of Interest

  • Thermal transport in micro/nanoscale materials (thin films, coatings, nanowires, and nanotubes): novel technique development for thermal conductivity measurement, the effect of material structure on its thermophysical properties
  • Large-scale molecular dynamics exploration and prediction of the thermophysical properties of nanoscale and nanostructured materials
  • Laser-assisted imaging of coatings for their defect/structural diagnostics
  • Laser-assisted bio-imaging with applications to early stage diagnostics of skin cancers and dental deterioration
