Dr.Liu Lab: Bio Nanomechanics, LU




Welcome to the Liu Research Lab at Lehigh University



Our primary research interest is Micro/NanoEngineering for Biology and Medicine, in particular, using combined computational and experimental fluid/solid mechanics approaches to characterize the interfacial phenomena at the micro/nano scale and in biological systems. Examples include fluid-structure interaction, particulate and multiphase flow, blood rheology, biomedical device (artificial heart, valves, stents, etc) design, electromagnetic manipulation of bio-nanoparticles, DNA sequencing in functionalized nanopores, etc. Current efforts focus on two emerging applications of bio-nanotechnology: Nanomedicine and Biosensing which involves and multiscale modeling, biofluid mechanics, image-based simulation, MEMS fabrication, microfluidic chip testing, nanoparticle adhesion dynamics, and cell manipulation..
