Laboratory of Polymer Materials
I am Kumkum Ahmed, working as an Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering, Shibaura Institute of Technology. My current research converges on the development of multifunctional gels, stimuli responsive gels, porous polymers, nanocomposite materials for applications in 3D printing, soft actuators and sensors. To learn more about my work please click on "learn more" tab
Research projects are as follows
Development of multifunctional polymers such as gels, porous polymers, nanocompisites, shape memory polymers etc.
Characterization of these materials and understanding of different properties (e.g. mechanical, conductive) for applications in actuators and sensors
Development of 3D printable devices such as sensors and actuators utilizing different polymers
Some research projects based on the above mentioned topics are shown below
