  • mechanobiological systems like bone
  • processes in living bone like bone remodeling, healing and mineralization
  • porosity of bone on different length scales  
  • computer modeling of mechanics, growth and adaptation of biological materials
  • structure-function relations and mechanical properties of hierarchically structured biological tissues
  • use of scanning acoustic microscopy for a micromechanical characterization of biological materials
  • phase transformation in natural and artificial materials
