Research Interests

I have published more than 20 research articles in the field of polymer and materials sciences. Our initial endeavors can be divided into three broad categories:

  1. Polymer synthesis from renewable feedstocks.
  2. Design and preparation of smart materials.
  3. Polymer composites. 

Our projects are highly applied, and we expect close collaboration with world-leading industries. These partnerships will offer unique training and career opportunities for the group members.
