Areas of Interest
Processing-structure and property relationships, their computer simulation, particularly the effect of stress history on the development of structural hierarchy in various polymer processes including injection molding, film and fiber forming; developing on-line structural monitoring strategies to understand the fundamentals of structural evolution under complex thermal deformation; histories that are imparted onto polymers during their processing; the effect of nano-sized organic and inorganic particles on the evolution of structural hierarchy in processed polymers.
