Welcome! Our group focuses on the development of novel additive manufacturing technologies to create unique functional, interwoven architectures and devices that cannot be created with conventional fabrication methods. We seek to advance the scientific understanding that enables the assembling and processing of functional nanomaterials as well as the seamless integration of diverse classes of materials. We develop a multi-scale, multi-material 3D printing approach that is fundamentally free from the constraint of the conventional two-dimensional, top-down fabrication methodologies. The abilities to create freeform multi-scale functional architectures and devices could overcome the geometrical, mechanical and material dichotomies between conventional manufacturing technologies and a broad range of three-dimensional systems. Ultimately, we strive to address unmet clinical needs by creating tailorable three-dimensional free-form biomedical devices with our advanced manufacturing technologies.
