Reseach Interests

Our research is to develop the use of agricultural feedstocks and by-products in polymer blends/composites for both bulk material and film applications. Specific areas of study include:

 

• Particle dispersions of agricultural materials  

• Dynamic/Static mechanical properties of polymer composites

• Rheological properties of particle and polymer dispersions

• Polymer networks, rubber elasticity, and bio-based elastomer composites

• Polymer miscibility and Interface interactions

 

The research contributes to the scientific knowledge of bio-based materials and their utilization in various industrial applications.
