Abstract I would like to thank my adviser Mory Gharib for his guidance and support throughout my time at Caltech. He has taught me by word and example in both the joy of new results and the disappointments of the difficulties. His admirable breadth of scientific horizons and depth of his insights, his soft style and infinite patience were among the most important factors of my growth as a researcher. I would like to thank my committee members Kaushik Bhattacharya, Scott Fraser, and Rob Phillips for their time and attention and for their valuable advice; and Guruswami (Ravi) Ravichandran for introducing me to ABAQUS. I would like to thank my friends and Gharib group-mates for their support and help throughout my years in graduate school. My time at Caltech would have been bleak without the atmosphere of friendliness in the group. I would like to thank Dr. Paul Finn of UCLA Medical School and Dr. David Sahn of OSHU for their suggestions and interest in my work, and for the medical insights they opened up for me. I would like to thank my high school chemistry teacher Ms. Rene Gibb of Brookline High School, MA, who played an integral role in setting me on the path that brought me to this thesis. I would like to thank my family for the unconditional support that spans time zones and continents. iv
