Research Projects

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

Accepting undergraduate students

Motivated individuals from any country who are nterested to work in developing polymers materials science for engineering applications are encouraged to apply to my lab. To learn more about the undergraduate program (IGP) please click the "Read more"
