Research

Primary research interests include:

  • Fundamental mechanical characterization and modeling of the response of natural dental biomaterials to applied loading, namely the periodontal ligament and cranial suture tissues
  • In vitro biomechanical simulation and design of orthodontic appliances and treatment methods (link to Orthodontic Biomechanics Testing and Development Group provided)
  • Characterization of synthetic dental biomaterials such as resin based composites and restorative ceramics
