Research Interests

Research in my laboratory is primarily focused on producing bio-based industrial products from lipid feedstocks via chemical transformation. Specific areas of study include:

·         3D Printing of Biomaterials: Soft Biomaterials and Smart Materials 


·         Controlled Release Systems: pH and Temperature Reversible Biomaterials for Controlled Drug  


·        Green Reactions: Supercritical and Sub-supercritical CO2 Media and Microwave Assisted Reactions


·         Kinetics and Catalysis: Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysts


·        Polymer Science and Engineering: Polymerization, Chemical Modification of Polymers, and Properties Characterization of Polymers


·         Environmental Chemistry and Engineering: Wastewater Treatment and Selective Separation via Ion and Ligand Exchange


·         Functionalized Polymers: Applications in Catalysis and Surfactants


·         Composites: Reinforced and Hybrid Materials
