Research Interests.

I have published over 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; and 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.
