Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I am leading the robotic instruments group. We are working on acoustic manipulation, magnetic micromanipulation, nanoforce characterization, autonomous micromanipulation, robotic microassembly, self-assembly, and their applications in biomedical , material and industrial applications. The research is highly interdisciplinary, from micro- and nanoscale physics, surface sciences, mechatronics, to automation methods. ace sciences, mechatronics, to automation methods.
