Welcome to my Research Lab

My research goal is to understand the process-structure-property relations of multiphase nano-structured lightweight and smart hybrid polymer foam materials, which have a variety of applications in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, energy storage, electronic device, and food and electronics packaging industries.

My research vision includes the fabrication and processing of lightweight and smart polymers and composite systems in batch, extrusion, injection molding, bead, and compounding foam processes, the characterization of these system properties, the correlation of micro- and nano-morphological variations with macro-polymer/composite properties, and multiphysics analytical and numerical modeling of these material systems.
