Dr. Edward Davis’ research interests include natural nanomaterials, processing of nanocomposites, and mechanical testing of structures and orthopedic repairs. He studied at Tulane obtaining an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering and a master’s degree in chemical engineering.
He has active research projects in the fields of nanocomposite processing, controlled release, and remote actuation of shape memory polymers.
Our research focus is biodegradable nanocomposites. The group currently has three thrusts:
- Controlled release systems
- Remotely stimulated shape memory materials
