Most of my research projects are highly interdisciplinary, which requires a lot of collaborations in different research fields, including mechanical engineering, material science and engineering, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering and medical schools. Many collaborations and funding opportunities have also been established between different institutions, departments, medical schools and industrial companies, which will be beneficial for future interdisciplinary projects.
