From 2010 to 2015, Stress gradient plasticity analysis to study size effects considering dislocation sources ,  Studying the mechanisms responsible for size effects in thin films including the effects of dislocation nucleation, the dislocation pileup as well as stress gradients.  Investigating an analytical solution of a dislocation pileup with a finite-strength source in the presence of various stress gradients.  Presenting a continuum implementation of stress gradient plasticity to analyze size dependent plasticity in passivated thin films under tension.  Presenting a second order stress gradient plasticity model to address the competition between the first and the second stress gradients in size effect interpretation of thin curved and straight film under pure bending.  Predicting the effect of variable length scale combined with the stress gradient effects on the torsion response of polycrystalline metal micro wires.
From 2007 to 2010, Analysis and optimization of thin walled composite beam with curvilinear fiber ,  Investigating the performance improvements of the variable-stiffness beams with curvilinear fiber over conventional, constant-stiffness beams with incorporation of non-classical effects.  Optimization of variable-stiffness composite beams subjected to different loading for maximum failure load.  Optimization of composite wings modeled as thin-walled beams through the use of curvilinear fiber for maximum aeroelastic instability speed purpose using a linear spanwise variation of the fiber.  Finite Element Analysis of Laminate with curvilinear fiber under compressive loading with and without opening.
