Research


My research focuses on developing fast, inexpensive and scalable approaches for surface patterning and microfabrication. Specifically, I study the mechanism of wrinkling as a way to impress regular patterns on polymers, with dimensions in the nm range. Moreover I investigate the manufacturing of microfluidic devices using photolithographic techniques.
