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.
