NALAM RESEARCH GROUP
Department of Materials Design and Innovation
University at Buffalo, SUNY
Nano Force Lab
The research in the lab focuses on understanding forces at nanoscales to develop novel and functional materials in the fields of tribology, biomedicine and environmental engineering. A better understanding of the structure-mechanical property relations is needed to develop reliable and system compatible materials.
The current research in the group focuses on soft materials and 2D materials.
