Professor Saif's research focuses on the mechanics of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), fracture mechanics, submicron materials behavior and bio-MEMS. He uses MEMS devices, often of his own design, to explore the mechanics of extremely small things-from nanocrystalline metal films to living cells.
