About

My teaching and research interest area is solid mechanics, biomaterials and additive manufacturing, specifically electrospun nanofiber manufacturing and application technologies for improving the biological performances of implant materials. I have developed 7 mechanical engineering (ME) courses  for UCO's and 2 ME courses for Texas Tech University mechanical engineering program. I have mentored three post-doctoral, 18 graduate, and more than 100 undergraduate research assistants. I have continuously received several state and university grants to fund the student research projects. I am an author of 26 peer-reviewed journal articles and presented more than 100 conference articles/abstracts, where mainly undergraduate and graduate students are co-authors. I am an inventor of five granted patents. I have collaborated with faculties and clinicians from UCO and other state universities, local industries, and hospitals. I am a recipient of USA full bright award. I have received several merit awards in the excellence of teaching and research from UCO due to my contribution in research and scholar activities.
