    I work on oxide ceramics, conducting experiments (most extensively in sintering, grain growth and microstructure control) and computational simulations (first-principles and empirical potential calculations, and mathatical modeling). I also work on field-assisted sintering and field-induced instability.

    My lab's research overlaps cell biology, physiology, pharmacology, immunology, microbiology, and genetics. To understand how airway cells sense and respond to pathogens, we combine biochemistry and molecular biology with real-time optical measurements of airway cell signaling and associated physiological responses, including ciliary beating, calcium signaling, fluid secretion, ion transport, nitric oxide production, and antimicrobial peptide secretion. Our goal is to better understand the cellular and molecular bases of airway diseases to identify novel molecular targets for new therapies.
