Main Interests

My teaching responsibility is primarily with the dental materials used in prosthodontics, such as metals, impression materials, cements, denture materials, and ceramics. My research activities include surface properties of dental materials regarding surface adhesion and adherence, controlled release for dental therapeutic agents and general mechanical properties of dental materials.
